Chartered Manager

Get your management skills recognised by becoming a Chartered Manager (CMgr)

CIHT has partnered with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to offer professionally qualified CIHT members a streamlined route to qualify as a Chartered Manager (CMgr). CMgr is the highest management qualification and is recognised throughout the public and private sectors and across all management disciplines.

CIHT members who hold Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng), or Transport Planning Professional (TPP) registration with five years or more of management experience are eligible for CMI’s qualified route to becoming a Chartered Manager. The qualified route reviews an applicant’s personal skills and expertise in leading people and managing change, and how these skills underpin continually effective performance and make a positive contribution to the individual’s organisation. 

Why become a Chartered Manager?

Management and leadership are key responsibilities for most engineers and planners working in transport infrastructure and CIHT membership surveys have shown that members commit a significant proportion of their professional development towards management and interpersonal skills to become and remain managerially as well as technically competent.
The benefits of becoming CMgr qualified include:

  • raising your profile and professional status
  • endorsing your management competence and capability
  • increasing your confidence
  • enhancing your employability.

CMgr application and renewal fees

Depending on experience, an eligible CIHT member can apply to be either a Chartered Manager Member (CMgr MCMI) or a Chartered Manager Fellow (CMgr FCMI).  
There is a choice of applying for CMgr via a written submission or a professional discussion. The application fees for these two routes are shown in the table below.

Eligible CIHT members receive a 50% discount on the CMI membership fee and this will continue as long as you retain your CIHT membership.

“ I applied for this qualification to mark a milestone in my career as an accomplished project manager as well as self-recognition of my management skills. The process in obtaining the qualification is straight forward but it does requires commitment and motivation to write up a good submission.”
