From April 2023, the CMLS Board are no longer accepting applications for certification directly. Instead, professional bodies operating CMLS approved CPD schemes will be able to issue certification on behalf of the Council for their members meeting the criteria.
Current certificants will maintain their certification until their renewal is due. At that time, they will need to contact their professional body operating their CPD scheme for details on how to provide the revised competency declaration and, provided their CPD records are valid, the professional body will issue their certification renewal and notify CMLS to update their entry on the register.
Those individuals who are not members of any of the professional bodies offering CPD recording and verification are strongly encouraged to join their relevant association but may opt to record their CPD via AIMS APACE as a non-member- see https://www.aims.org.au/apace. AIMS will issue certification for those meeting the requirements.
