Effective June 1, 2023, all certification designation applications must be submitted via the IIMC Education Certification portal. The portal may be accessed via the following links:

Please only submit your application ONCE unless a member of the Education Certification Department specifically instructs you to do otherwise. Following this procedure as outlined is extremely important for tracking purposes; duplicate submissions will disrupt and delay processing.

Please don't email, post, or fax application to IIMC since they will no longer be accepted. Moving forward, the Education Department will only process complete applications. IIMC will no longer accept or retain partial submissions.

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.
