Chatered Professional

Chartered Customer Service Professional

Being a Chartered Customer Service Professional (CCSP) opens many doors for you. The CCSP designation is your passport to a leadership position in Customer Service just as Chartered Accountants are in Accounting.

By carrying the CCSP title, employers can be confident that your knowledge and experience comply with the highest professional standards.


How do you become one?

  1. Successfully complete the Advanced Diploma In Customer Service or Post Graduate Diploma In CRM or any other customer service qualification approved by the CICRM.
  2. Earn an appropriate master's degree from an accredited institution.
  3. Complete at least two years of practical training in the industry with an organization that is accredited to the CICRM. The organization where you do your training must appoint a mentor to monitor your training program. This mentor gives you career development guidance until you are eligible to apply for the CCSP title.
  4. Compile evidence of your competence in the form of a Curriculum Vitae. Include examples of how you used your customer service knowledge to advance the customer service cause. Identify a project in which you applied theoretical and practical methods to analyze and solve a customer service problem. Include evidence of working experience where you exercised technical and commercial leadership skills. Explain your personal commitment to professional standards and recognition of responsibilities towards the society and environment. Include an action plan for your own future professional development.
  5. Take photocopies of all authenticated certificates related to your customer service education. Ask your mentor to sign each copy.
  6. Obtain the Standard for Customer Service Professional Competence Application Form from the CICRM. Complete the form and submit it along with your detailed Curriculum Vitae and Certificate copies.
  7. Wait for the CICRM to contact you with a date for your assessment interview. The CICRM will review the documentation you submitted, and determine whether you qualify for the assessment interview.
  8. Attend the interview and answer all questions to the best of your ability. The interview is conducted by a number of interviewers who will compile a report and submit it to the CICRM Council. The Council will decide whether you are approved for the CCSP Status and notify you of the outcome. If you qualify, the CICRM Council will automatically register you as a CCSP.
