CMC / MMC Certification Programs
Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) Program
The CMC program is designed to enhance the job performance of the Clerk in small and large municipalities. To earn the CMC designation, a Municipal Clerk must attend extensive education programs. The CMC designation also requires pertinent experience in a municipality. The CMC program prepares the applicants to meet the challenges of the complex role of the Municipal Clerk by providing them with quality education in partnership with institutions of higher learning, as well as State / Provincial / National Associations. The CMC program has been assisting clerks to excel since 1970.
Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) Program
The MMC program is one of the two professional designations granted by IIMC. The MMC program is an advanced continuing education program that prepares participants to perform complex municipal duties. The program has an extensive and rigorous educational component and a professional and social contribution component. The MMC applicant must demonstrate that they have actively pursued education and professional activities.
Application for Admission
Filing an Application for Admission
with IIMC is the first step
in working toward the Certified Municipal Clerk designation (CMC) or the Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) designation. This is the enrollment form for both certification programs. The purpose of this application is to register applicants into the IIMC system and keep them informed of education opportunities that IIMC institutes may offer.
There is a non-refundable application fee of $50 to enter into either program - it will be deducted from the final fee for application for the CMC or MMC Designation. When ready to submit for points, the applicant will be required to complete an Application for Designation (point request form), attach supporting documentation and present to the Education Department for review.
