What is meant by “Industry Certification”?
How does a person obtain his industry recognition?
A person can obtain industry recognition or certification by first joining CCIG Malaysia as an ordinary member. The next step is presenting his or her job portfolio to a seven-member certification panel appointed under an industry-led framework called the Creative Content Industry Recognition Framework, or CCIRF. Three tiers of certification are provided – Practitioner, Advanced and Professional.
CCIRF is administered by CCIG, an industry-led body, tasked with providing industry recognition to all practitioners via specific certification processes.
Unlike the well-known MQF (Malaysian Qualification Framework), CCIRF focuses on the experience, skill, contribution and achievement of a practitioner. This is a major difference in approach because CCIRF evaluates “what has been delivered for the industry” instead of academic achievement.
