There are two versions of the qualified route:
- Written submission and telephone interview

All CMgrs are required to maintain records of their CPD and to submit these to CMI if requested to do so. Each year we ask a number of CMgrs to do this so they can be nominated for Chartered Manager of the year award.
CMI accepts CPD records in any electronic format as long as they can demonstrate a structured approach to CPD that includes:
- Reflection on development needs
- Planning of intended development activities
- The undertaking of relevant development activities
- Evaluation of the effectiveness of these activities in meeting development objectives
All learners with at least 3 years management experience are eligible to apply to become Chartered Manager and would become Chartered Members of CMI. If you have at least 10 years management experience, of which at least 3 years have been at a strategic level, then you are eligible to become a Chartered Fellow of CMI. The application process will ask you to tell us how many years management experience you have and will then ask a number of questions to verify this. You will then be offered CMI Member or Fellow grade, depending on your responses, before you progress to be assessed for CMgr. So, you do not need to apply to become a Fellow; you will be offered this grade if you have the required level of experience.
Chartered Members can use the post-nominals CMgr MCMI. Chartered Fellows can use the post-nominals CMgr FCMI.
