2 Why change the current system? Raise standards Consistent standard of IAM training across the country Market forces Neutralise future threats to the way IAM and local groups operate Telling the DSA we are good enough may no longer be sufficient Elevating the perception of IAM advanced training away from ’A bunch of amateurs’ NAM Training Team co-ordinator (Mel Leitch) NamTraining@gmail.com

6 National Observer Assessment IAM Staff Examiner using IMI standards – Ideally using a real associate – Questions on elements the examiner may not have been able to see – Quality of assessments will be verified by IAM (all paperwork and some tests) – In the event of failing a module, 3 month window from date of first test to pass failed module. Outside 3 months window have to re-sit all of the test – Periodically Re-qualify (possibly every 5 years) with Staff Examiner NAM Training Team co-ordinator (Mel Leitch) NamTraining@gmail.com

7 Local observer (?) Assessed by group examiner holding National Observer qualification against IMI standards – Ideally using a real associate – Questions on elements the examiner may not have been able to see – Quality of assessments will be verified by IAM staff examiner (paperwork and some tests) – Unclear if re-qualification needed over time NAM Training Team co-ordinator (Mel Leitch) NamTraining@gmail.com
