Transitioning from CMSA to CIMSA marks a significant milestone as it represents a commitment to fully embracing the IPC scheme, reinforcing our dedication to industry standards. Here is what is new:


With CIMSA, our accreditation level elevates to level 5, as certified by PECB. This recognition, endorsed by all Certification Bodies within the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), amplifies the global acceptance and legitimacy of the CIMSA credential.

Alignment with the IPC Scheme

The transition signifies a deeper integration of the IPC scheme into our training, examination, and the inclusion of a Personality Test as mandated by IPC requirements. This ensures greater credibility and adherence to international standards.
