SINGAPORE - Two new Practising Management Consultant (PMC) certification levels have been launched to recognise consultants in the business world, the Singapore Business Advisors and Consultants Council Ltd (SBACC) said today.
SBACC, which is an industry-led, not-for-profit organisation, represents practising management consultants and business advisors in Singapore.
The Council governs the activities and certification of professional consulting fields and the registration of business advisors.
The PMC scheme was launched in November 2008, with the PMC Certification Board integrated within the SBACC in 2011.
Since 2008, more than 500 PMCs have been given out to consultants in business.
Among the new PMC certification levels launched, the Senior PMC certification will recognise practising consultants with at least 8 years of business consulting experience, while the Fellow PMC certification will acknowledge the contribution of long practising consultants with at least 15 years of experience.
Senior PMCs will need to have fulfiled a minmum of 3,000 consulting hours while Fellow PMCs will need to have a minimum of 4,000 consulting hours clocked.
In a statement, the SBACC says that it aims to facilitate the growth of a talent pool of professional practising consultants locally.
The PMC scheme will also be extended to go beyond the certification of generic consulting skills to domain area certification. This would help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) identify certified professional consultants with the right expertise, it says.
