Construction / Civil Engineering / type of accreditation/qualification
French term or phrase: CMIN
Hi! Does anyone know how to translate the acronym "CMIN" (level 1 or 2)? The text is an audit for a construction company, in which there are questions about the percentage of CMIN-qualified staff.
Fast answers very much appreciated.
