The course has been very successful amongst practitioners working in the IM sector.  However we are well aware that busy work schedules can be challenging for someone who wishes to upskill their sector knowledge. This difficulty has now been addressed by the launch of a new flexible study format which includes the option to register for modules individually as well.


Design your own Certification

IMCET's training portfoilio consists now of 7 Modules, from which one can choose to create their own version of the Certification.  Also one can choose to register for Modules individually over a period of time.  Once 5 Modules are completed, these will be converted into the designation Cert (IM)  and will then be considered a certified IM practitioner


The price includes the following benefits:

  • Online registration
  • All Training course material
  • The online examination
  • Access to progress reports
  • Access to the mobile app Learning path
  • Certificate and the professional designation Cert (IM) on successful completion

You can either pay by Credit Card (Visa or Mastercard) or by Bank Transfer.  All details will be provided on the invoice.

The course is very flexible.  You choose when and where to study.  There is no need to log on at specific times as you will have access to all the material, and you can therefore study at your own pace from anywhere around the world.

The certification needs to be completed within 6 months.  However, the average total study time is that of around 25 hours.  In fact, each Module should take around 5 hours of study time. When registering for an individual Module, you are to complete it within 30 days.

Once the exam is completed, you will get results instantly and you’ll also have access to the Certificate which will be found under your profile in your own portal.
