IMI Local Observer Qualification Documents

The IAM IMI Local Observer scheme is open to all groups who have candidates who wish to take the programme, The programme will make the assessments easier to manage from within each group but retain the necessary checks to ensure we are all operating to the same IMI competency level.

Please familiarise yourself with the group user guide and programme documents below. Your Regional Manager and Quality Manager will be able to answer any process or implementation questions you may have.

Please use the email address for all form submissions and correspondence on IMI matters.
