I am a CMD Consultant and currently have CMIOSH MIIRSM MCIOB

Do you think it is worth getting the CMAPS?

I have looked at the requirements to get this and it isn’t easy, but is there any realistic value? In terms of getting a higher paid job or looking more attractive to potential employees?

I have also looked into this and it does actually look quite difficult to reach the 22 points unless you have qualifications coming out of your ears. I am also CMIOSH and FIIRSM but even then it still seems that I will be a couple of points v short of the 22 points required.

The HSE accept CMIOSH as an acceptable level of competence when it comes to complying with CDM2015.

I agree with you, I am not entirely sure what I would gain from it, but that is just my personal opinion.

Do the HSE have something written regarding this acceptance ?

The tricky part is getting the minimum four points in the design criteria. 

Maybe in the future this will set out the difference between the top level CDM Advisors? just a thought.
