The IMA offers 2 levels of accreditation: Gold and Silver. Both levels of accreditation indicate a program with good program results, effective design, and commendable implementation. Indeed, no program can attain accreditation without showing strong positive results.
The accreditation program review process is the same for both levels of accreditation, with the addition of interviews of program leaders and participants for Gold accreditation. Program accreditation is good for 5 years, with a mid-cyle “check-in” conducted by IMA.
