Inter-Cultural Certification

IMI set up a Task Force in April 2010 to develop criteria for inter-cultural mediator training and IMI Certification. The Task Force’s goals were to develop criteria that are succinct, flexible, and feasible to implement by trainers and QAPs (Qualifying Assessment Programs).

Training, professional and provider organizations wishing to offer IMI Inter-Cultural Certification are invited to submit their applications to become Inter-Cultural Qualifying Assessment Programs (ICQAPs) to the Chair of the IMI Independent Standards Commission (ISC) [1]. Once approved, ICQAPs will be displayed at: This link will enable mediators seeking this certification to easily find approved ICQAPs offering training programs. 

Criteria will be regularly reviewed by the ISC and may be modified in the future. All comments and suggestions are welcome. Please send all comments and suggestions via contact IMI.
