Certification

NZIPIM runs the Dairy Farm Systems Certification Scheme, and the People Management Certification Scheme.

NZIPIM certification schemes assess the knowledge base and competency of individuals providing dairy farm systems and people management advice. This provides the industry and farming community assurance and confidence in the skills and knowledge of certified individuals.

All applicants and certified individuals must be members of NZIPIM and have completed our Ethics Module. There will also be a requirement for certified consultants to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of 20 hours of structured learning per year.

NZIPIM also provides professional development opportunities aligned to certification schemes to build individual's skills and knowledge base.

The development of NZIPIM's certification schemes is supported under Transforming the Dairy Value Chain Primary Growth Partnership funded by New Zealand dairy farmers through DairyNZ and the Ministry of Primary Industries. Other related schemes include:
