IMM’s Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”) Scheme for Certified Personnel

Updated on 20th October 2021

DEFERMENT OF IMPLEMENTATION OF CPD SCHEME

IMM hears you. We understand that members may face difficulties in collecting CPD points during the Covid-19 pandemic and hence, the implementation of the CPD requirement for recertification has been deferred to January 2023.  In view of the above deferment:

  • IMM Certified personnel who are due for recertification in 2022 are exempted from the CPD requirement.
  • IMM Certified personnel who are due for recertification in 2023 or the subsequent years are required to collect sufficient CPD points from the year 2022 in order to qualify for recertification.

To acknowledge and recognise the effort of members who have collected the CPD points in 2021, the points collected can be carried forward for the purpose of recertification in 2023 or thereafter. CPD points can be collected through various types of pertinent activities conducted by IMM as well as other institutions. The objective of implementing the CPD scheme is to encourage Certified Personnel to regularly improve themselves and keep themselves updated with the latest developments in their industry. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any inquiries.


With effect from 1st January 2023, all IMM Certified Personnel will be required to submit their yearly Continuing Professional Development (CPD) report to qualify for renewal of their certification upon expiry. The objective of CPD is to encourage Certified Personnel to regularly improve themselves and keep themselves updated with the latest developments in their industry. As such, IMM-certified personnel can commence collecting CPD Points during the year 2022 to meet the required one-year CPD Points by the year 2023.
