CLCs are meant for continuing education and development which is a must for a professional in any field.
IMPA will authorize short courses of duration 1 to 5 days by appointing authorized training partners and each course will have 3 CLCs attached for each day (6 to 8 hours) of training conducted.
IMPA institutional members as well as IMPA certified Senior Associates can become authorized training partners by getting their courses approved by IMPA CLC approval committee.
In addition to this there will be CLCs attached with various IMPA regional and national conferences and IMPA learning events.
IMPA Certified Image Professionals will need to earn a designated number of CLCs each year to qualify for higher level of certification along with other certification requirements for that level.
At the same time it presents an opportunity for IMPA Certified Senior Associates and institutional members to create courses and get them approved by IMPA.
