From the Desk of the President of IAMPS

Greetings, it’s my pleasure to introduce and recommend the professional services of the Institute of Arts Management and Professional Studies (IAMPS) approved by the Federal Ministry of Education (FME), Abuja, Nigeria and Established under the Federal Republic of Nigeria CAM Act 1990, with No. RC1329612.

The essential difference between professional and academic credentials is that professional credentials are ‘warrants of competence’ or ‘warrant of expertise’ whereas academic credentials are certificate of knowledge. With professional designations, the certifying body is warranting that the certified worker (trades person or professional) has the essential knowledge and skills of a specified domain necessary for safe and appropriate practice of the trade or profession. With academic credentials, there is no such ‘warrant of competence,’ an academic credential means that someone has successfully completed a particular course of study but not the certification of competent to practice a trade or profession. Professional designations are ‘warrants of competence,’ it becomes important for certifying bodies to define specifically what certificates must be completed. Professional designations are always built upon a practice analysis, which defines what certified individuals need to know or be able to do. Academic credentials are rarely based upon formal and systematic practice analyses.

Institute of Arts Management and Professional Studies (IAMPS) is unique in its membership services as being an officially incorporated professional organization to provide assessment of competency to grant membership grades, it has also developed its curricula at different level that meet with the required demand of standards of the profession of Arts Management and Professional Studies. These courses are articulated or recognized by various Educational Institutions and Universities to confer appropriate conversion examination opportunities to holders of Professional Advanced Diploma Certificate (PADC), Professional Graduate Diploma Certificate (PGDC) as well as Associate and Full Membership upon successful completion of their training with us.

I welcome you to the Membership of IAMPS where both academic certification and professional training are available to suitably qualified and experienced candidates in the field of Arts Management and Professional Studies.

Best Wishes.
Prof. Barr. Amuda Kannike Abiodun (SAN), FCIAP
