CMALT Australasia is a certified membership scheme offered in partnership with the Association for Learning Technology (ALT) UK. The scheme is a form of professional accreditation which enables people whose work involves learning technology to have their experience and capabilities certified by peers, and to demonstrate that they are taking a committed approach to their professional development. As a certified member of ALT you can increase the impact of your professional record or CV and use “CMALT” as post-nominal letters. The basis of the accreditation process is a portfolio which contains both evidence and reflection in relation to a number of key criteria.
CMALT certification means you obtain professional recognition and attain Certified Membership for your experience and capability in the field of learning technology.
