Cost: $495/members, $625/non-members

The goal of Ethical Behaviour: Best Practices of Management Consultants is to acquaint consultants with the challenges associated with maintaining professional standards and best practices in the profession. While the course is primarily directed at management consultants, the material is applicable to those offering advisory services in other genres, including accounting, technology, and human resources.

In an interactive setting, participants explore how to avoid, and resolve, ethical dilemmas frequently faced by consultants.

The course takes approximately five hours and ends with an online exam marked by a Certified Management Consultant.

Thank you for your interest in the Ethical Behaviour: Best Practices of Management Consultants course.

CMC-Canada’s certifications courses are currently undergoing a review. We are looking to refresh the materials and offer our courses exclusively online, ensuring equal access to all CMC candidates across the country. By streamlining the process and refreshing the course content, we strive to address evolving trends and management consultants’ current training needs. We will also roll out a 2-semester schedule to ensure candidates can better plan their certification journey.

The certification courses review will be completed in Spring 2020.

The answers to the following questions, and other thought-provoking issues, are addressed within the course:

  • What is a conflict of interest, and how can it be avoided?
  • If such a conflict does arise, how can it be resolved?
  • What does it mean to treat a client's information as confidential?
  • Is the duty to serve a client absolute?
  • When could this duty to serve the client conflict with one's duty to the profession, the firm and other professionals?
  • How can you limit your legal liability in the process?

Candidates will be notified in writing of their pass/fail within 10 business days of writing the exam. If the grade is a fail, candidates have the option to re-take the course within a specific time period, at an additional cost.

*Please note: Starting 2020 certification courses will be offered online only and regularly scheduled in the Spring & Fall.*
