The IMS Certificate is a professional qualification for people who are serious about improving productivity.

This course can only be taken after you have attended Module 1 Productivity Foundation . It completes the IMS Time Study Practical (TSP) certificate – an industry standard qualification.

Time Study is the original technique of work measurement, simple in concept though it does require a high degree of concentration and expertise on the part of the observer. Direct Time Study is the technique principally used for the measurement of repetitive work, ie it follows a defined pattern and method.

Module 2a consists of 5 days of practical Time Study involving arithmetical calculations and requiring numeracy and logic, followed by an exam from the IMS. Successful delegates, in addition to the TSP certificate, will receive a Scott-Grant Performance Rating card, valid for one year; it can be re-certified through a Scott-Grant Performance Rating Clinic.
