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 capabilities in the field of learning technology.
CMALT BootCamp 15 -18 November 2021
The CMALT Boot Camp explores an international Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) professional accreditation framework – the Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT). Concepts and example applications will be outlined in a pre-reading guide, an introductory webinar and illustrated by a webinar panel of current CMALT holders.

The bootcamp is suitable for anyone interested in applying for CMALT accreditation to gain international recognition for expertise in TEL and is held over 4 days (1 – 2 hours per day).
