Information for Those Who Wish to Receive their AEM/CEM Diploma at the IAEM 2018 Annual Conference (17 Nov 2017)
AEM/CEM candidates in the Class of 2018 who are interested in receiving their diploma at the IAEM Annual Conference during the awards ceremony on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, must have their initial AEM/CEM credential application approved no later than the July 2018 online review meeting (application submission deadline is June 30, 2018), and must take and return their completed exam to IAEM Headquarters by Sept. 20, 2018, as well as receive a passing grade. No supplemental reviews will occur prior to the scheduled September 2018 online review meeting.
The Certification Commission conducts electronic reviews using the online system. Every other month, commissioners are expected to review, on average, 10-15 applications, based on volume, within a 30-day window. Interested applicants must be detail oriented, responsive via email and phone, and plan to devote approximately 30 hours per review month (180 hours yearly) to online reviews. Commissioners also draft notification letters to candidates so commissioners must possess clear, concise writing skills.
The Certification Commission has one in-person meeting per year as well as quarterly conference calls lasting between 1-2 hours to discuss policy and procedure changes. Occasionally, commissioners may be asked to serve on a short term ad-hoc working group related to a topic of discussion on the Certification Commission. IAEM is prepared to cover the travel costs for the in-person review meetings for commissioners living outside of the DC metro area.
