Certified Management Consultant is a protected title under Alberta’s Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act [pdf].

To call yourself a Certified Management Consultant (CMC), you must be a registered member of the Institute of Certified Management Consultants of Alberta (CMC-Alberta). You do not have to be registered if you do not call yourself a Certified Management Consultant or use the initials CMC after your name.

The CMC designation is recognized in nearly 50 countries around the world. All regulatory bodies affiliated with the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes recognize the CMC designation.

What You Need

CMC candidates must:

  • Be registered as a Prospective-Associate Member with CMC-Alberta
  • Have a university degree, a professional licence (such as Chartered Professional Accountant), or an equivalent combination of experience and education
  • Have a minimum of 3 years of relevant management consulting or related industry experience
  • Successfully complete certification requirements, including specific course work
  • Pass an ethics exam
  • Pass a peer-reviewed oral assessment

For official, detailed information about the Certified Management Consultant designation, contact CMC-Alberta or visit the CMC-Alberta website.

Working in Alberta

Management consultants who are registered and in good standing with a regulatory body elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta.

For more information, see What if I am already certified in another province or territory in Canada? and the CMC-Alberta website.

The certification information in this profile may change at any time and without notice. Before making any career decisions, we advise you to contact the regulatory organization or visit their website for the most updated information.
