The professional qualifications that CIM offer are of the highest standard possible. They have been developed based on professional capabilities and driven by employer requirements. These capabilities draw from both academic expertise and best practice, and provide a framework fit for today’s professional marketer.
To keep standards at the top of the profession, from time to time a review is necessary. So we want to make sure that London studying members are kept up-to-date on the latest review.
The qualification review affects both the Level 4 and Level 6 qualifications
There is no change at this stage to the Introductory Certificate in Marketing (Level 3) or the Chartered Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing (Level 7) There are also no planned changes to the existing CAM qualification portfolio.
The structure of the Level 4 and Level 6 qualifications, plus the transition arrangements are outlined below:
