Full Membership Application
As an applicant you are required to apply in writing setting out your experience as a management advisor including your personal details, qualifications and training, history, and areas of advisory specialisation, knowledge and expertise.
Your application will provide an outline which captures your most recent and relevant experience as a Business Management Advisor. You should attach an up to date curriculum vitae (CV) or resume and certified copies of your professional qualifications. As part of your application you will need to submit three (3) summaries of recent management advisory projects that you have undertaken.
The assessment interview involves an interview either face to face or virtual meeting, with a panel of no less than two ABMA Board Members. During the interview, you will be invited to select one of the advisory projects that you have written up as part of your application and make a 15 minute presentation on the project. This will be followed by panel members discussing with you your experience, skills, methods and knowledge and assess these against ABMA expected standards.
You should ensure that you are familiar with the three elements of the Framework.
After the interview and presentation, the Assessment Panel will contact two (2) of your nominated client referees to obtain their feedback concerning the project/s or work you have undertaken for those clients and your demonstrated management advisory expertise.
The Board of the ABMA will contact you to advise whether you are recommended for certification within about 10 days of your interview. If the panel feel that you are not yet ready, they will provide you with feedback to assist you in either making a re-submission or gaining further experience.
