Credential Review Dates

Credential Submission

As of Aug. 16, 2014, all applications must be submitted through the online system. No hard copy submissions will be accepted.

Important Note about Deadline Dates:

  • The published deadline date is for first-time AEM/CEM.
  • Recertification candidates are reminded their deadline is December 31 of the year in which they are due to recertify (i.e. every five years beginning from their original certification year). Keep in mind that your recertification fee must be posted to your record prior to submitting your recertification application. Payments made online are batched and posted on the next business day so plan accordingly. 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. We suggest you do not wait until the last minute to submit your recertification application. It is the candidates responsibility to keep IAEM apprised of your current contact information (including email address) to ensure you continue to receive information related to your certification designation and/or any changes to the certification requirements.
  • Resubmission candidates are reminded that their deadline date is 90 days from the date of the incomplete letter and their supplemental submission must be completed through the online system.
  • Submissions must be received at IAEM HQ before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
