Certified Membership (CMALT)


CMALT, our Certified Membership scheme,  is a peer-based professional accreditation scheme developed by ALT to enable people whose work involves learning technology to:

  • have their experience and capabilities certified by peers;
  • demonstrate that they are taking a committed and serious approach to their professional development.

Have a look at the CMALT Prospectus [PDF] for an introduction to the scheme at a glance. Use the menu on the left to find out more about CMALT registration fees and promotional initiatives, support for candidates and assessors or how to submit your portfolio. You might also be interested in reading about our CMALT portfolio sharing initiative launched early in 2016 or how we celebrated our 300th CMALT Holder

CMALT holders or Certified Members of ALT are learning technology practitioners, teachers and researchers from across the educational and commercial sectors. You can access the List of CMALT Holders here. 

CMALT and other CPD frameworks

CMALT is an independent, peer-led accreditation scheme. However we always look to map CMALT to other frameworks and courses. Currently, we offer mappings to:

  • CMALT and UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) [download a PDF mapping of CMALT and the UKPSF];
  • CMALT and Blended Learning Essentials for vocational education [further info & a mapping is available to download] ;
  • CMALT and ocTEL, the Open Course in Technology Enhanced Learning [further info]; 
  • CMALT Australasia which provides a version of CMALT for individuals in Australasia;
  • CMALT and internal CPD provision: we offer a discounted registration rate for groups from ALT member organisations. Coming soon will be more information about CMALT integration into internal CPD provision. 

The presentation below gives an additional overview of CMALT as a peer-based accreditation scheme and its development.
