Recertification

Certification is effective for a period of 5 years. If you are not sure of your recertification year, please refer to your original notification letter, last recertification letter, email reminder notices sent from IAEM headquarters beginning 18 months prior to deadline, or call IAEM Headquarters.


Recertification Steps

  • Pay Recertification Fee ($250 for IAEM members and $325 for non-members)
    • Keep in mind that you need to pay your recertification fee before submitting your recertification application. Payments made online are batched and posted on the next business day. 
  • Increase in Re-certification Fee Effective June 1, 2019: The new rates will be $260 (USD) for IAEM members and $340 (USD) for Non-IAEM members. Candidates may click here to pay their re-certification fee now to avoid the additional cost.
  • Submit Recertification Application 
    • Candidates must meet and submit recertification requirements prior to Dec. 31 at 11:59 pm EST of the fifth year of previous certification/recertification. (For example, if certified in September 2012, recertification must be accomplished prior to Dec. 31, 2017.)

It is the candidate's responsibility to inform IAEM of their current contact information (including email address) to ensure that you continue to receive information related to your certification designation and/or any changes to the certification requirements.

Your Certification expires for those who fail to recertify every five years as required.


Recertification Requirements

All current holders of the AEM or CEM who wish to maintain their designation must recertify at five-year intervals by submitting documentation that demonstrates continuing education in Emergency Management and General Management topics as well as professional contributions.
