All CMS resources remain accessible to students and Corporate Memory Stewards in good standing.
This is an about 120 hour Self Study + Seminars + Practical Learning Time + You Demonstrating Capability and Readiness To Become a Chartered Memory Steward And Work With a CMS Designation. We take your CPA skills and add a focus on what a business is and does and looks like so you can better understand how it needs to be remembered.
Candidate Self Study Materials link to self learning resources that prepare you for the seminars and Strategic Archives interaction.
Candidates also receive a copy of Wissensmanagement Forum's Illustrated Guide To Knowledge Management, arguably the best overview ever of the topic. We advise starting with it and glancing though it and getting the highlights. Then go through the other links and come back to the guide in the end and have a closer look.
Note it may take some candidates longer than 120 hours because they must demonstrate their competence and capability to create a Private, Secure Simple Machines Forum For A Community of Practice that reflects a chosen purpose. The Self Study Course is skewed towards business but Candidates can choose their purpose driven forum by declaring their intent and obtaining Certification of Registrar approval. A Candidate's forum will be assessed and and discussed with The Registrar and then compared with the Strategic Archives template which the Candidate will be provided access to.
Live webinars are presented by Taxboard founder John B Voorpostel CPA, CA. Taxboard is the Leading Community Of Practice For Canadian Tax And Accounting Professionals. Blending his background in economics, accounting, business and tax, and persectives he's gained in his more than 35 years helping business owners and professionals make better business and financial decisions, John has assembled an arsenal of valuable resources for CPAs willing to invest in themselves.
His accumulated business concepts and models and tools, some unique insights into what a business is and does and how it should be remembered, and his focus on Management By Questions skew the CMS towards a business oriented designation and solution. John takes your CPA skills and makes you look beyond the numbers and their reporting and disclosure to strategic resources, and shifts your focus from accounting to purposefully organizing strategic memories.
Interaction with others in the Strategic Archives CMS Forum is a significant part of the learning experience and final candidate assessment.
A CMS can apply their professional skills to any collaboration platform, but final qualification and award of the designation is based on student creating their own purposed forum using Simple Machines. Construction of a Candidate's purpose driven forum requires a web host with Cpanel which is the responsibility of the course participant. Web hosting plans with Cpanel are easy to obtain and cheap and tax deductible. If you have a website now, it's not a lot of work to get Simple Machines up and running
