Recognition & Further Path for Professional Qualifications
A Participant satisfies the professional and educational requirement for CPM designation. The participant plus 3 years of management experience will lead to full certification and use of CPM as designation. Participants with lesser experience will be admitted as Associate Members and then progress to Full Members when the 3-year experience is achieved. Fellow membership will be open to all qualified professionals or by invitation. The certified professional mediator has to achieve continuing professional development (CPD) / education programs (20 hours) as recognized by the ICRM's panel membership requirement. This needs to be done before scheduling your recertification simulation. To maintain the highest credibility and quality of CPM status and for the benefits of CPMs' members, they have to go through the re-certification process ( on-line MC test) after three years from their date of granting the designation. The recertification process is the same every three years.

ACCREDITATION AND RECOGNITION
Graduates meet the requirements for admission to membership of the Certified Professional Mediator (CPM). For those who wish to apply for exemption from professional qualification, similar and/or equivalent qualification and experience will be considered. We also do not feel that a single course every two years satisfies the educational growth and professional development requirements. The lifelong learning process should be highly self motivated and continuous. Educational sources and professional development are numerous such as books, magazines, the internet, conferences, seminars, forum, discussion groups, and other formal university and/or institute courses or class. Our Institute is a self-regulated and recognized institution, and your certificate/diploma is certification of your achievement of knowledge in the mediation training program from which you have graduated. However it is up to the individual organization or employer to determine acceptance of certification from the Institute. Please download the application for CPM form:
