Why Should I Get Certified

PRACTISING MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT (PMC) CERTIFICATION SCHEME

Launched in 2008, the PMC Certification Scheme is a structured certification scheme that ensures a consistent quality of certified management consultants in Singapore. It is designed to raise the professionalism of the management consulting industry, and to promote the PMC designation as a mark of quality assurance.

Each management consultant is rigorously assessed by the PMC Certification Board before he is certified as a Practising Management Consultant. The PMC designation is therefore a formal endorsement of the individual’s professionalism and integrity, and is a testament to his or her competency and reliability.

The PMC Scheme therefore:

  • helps SMEs and other stakeholders to identify Practising Management Consultants who are qualified, competent and credible;
  • builds a critical mass of competent management consultants to serve SMEs; and
  • facilitates high growth of SMEs and enhances their competitiveness in the industry.

To further assist SMEs in identifying and engaging certified management consultants with appropriate expertise, the PMC Scheme is expanded beyond certifying competencies in generic consulting skills to include knowledge and skills in specific domain areas.

Both the PMC Certification Board and the PMC Scheme have the full support of SPRING Singapore, Workforce Development Agency (WDA), Intellectual Property of Singapore (IPOS) and others.
