CICM Learning Partnerships

A CICM Learning Partnership is for organisations with a team of two or more working in credit who are committed to working with CICM to establish learning and development arrangements and strive to motivate, raise skills and encourage their credit team to get qualified.

A CICM Learning Partnership recognises your commitment to people development and supports your training and qualification plans with:

  • Direct access to a CICM education specialist.
  • 6 monthly reviews on progress and focus on people development.
  • Discounted CICM membership, training, qualification courses and other services.
  • Access to the CICM Best Practice network.
  • Access for one manager to use CICM Knowledge Hub monitoring tool.

Learning Partnerships are for two years with the opportunity to renew for organisations that have demonstrated good progress towards their training and qualification goals. The partnership supports CICMQ accreditation and the achievement of CICM Centre of Excellence status.
