The Lifetime CEM designation is an honor bestowed by the Certification Commission.
Once IAEM Headquarters has received the completed online nomination form for the candidate from a current CEM, plus two written, signed reference letters from current CEMs, the application will be reviewed by the Certification Commission during the next scheduled review meeting.
If the Certification Commission accepts the lifetime nomination, the recommendation will be forwarded to the USA Board of Directors for their review and approval. The candidate will be awarded their Lifetime CEM after the minutes from the USA Board of Directors meeting, stating acceptance of the candidate’s Lifetime nomination, have been approved. Please note that this process can take several months. We thank you in advance for your patience.
The online nomination form can be accessed at www.iaemcem.org.
