Who is a Certified Integrated Medical Leave and Accommodations Management Specialist (CIMLA)?

A Certified Integrated Medical Leave and Accommodations Specialist is someone who can implement the Integrated Medical Leave and Accommodations Management SystemTM in their organization consistently and confidently with the company's policies, procedures, and union contracts.

The Only Course on Integrated Medical Leaves and Accommodations in California by HR for HR.

Traditionally, medical leaves and accommodation regulations are taught by attorneys.

Listen up folks…

We are HR! We like to learn with scenarios and examples.

This course is created by an FMLA/ADA HR compliance expert for 27+ years. That means, you will learn everything in simple, HR-friendly language without the legalese.

Why this Course?

Over the past five years, I have trained thousands of HR professionals helping them understand and implement these regulations. Time and again, HR professionals expressed the need for an in-depth training they can learn at their own pace, time, and comfort.

The answer came in the form of Certified Integrated Medical Leave and Accommodations Specialist Course.


But there is another reason why this course can be such a valuable resource.
And it has to do with the Dr. Hermann Ebbinghaus’s Forgetting Curve theory.
According to Hermann, when we learn something new, we forget 30% of that information within 24 hours and almost 90% percent within the first month.
No wonder why your training wasn't having the impact you'd hoped for.
Not anymore.
