Oceania and Europa CEM® education waiver expires Dec. 31, 2013 - Transition requirements in effect until Dec. 31, 2015

from IAEM

Currently, Oceania and Europa CEM® candidates may substitute experience for a degree in the education requirements component of the credential. This waiver will expire at the end of 2013. As an interim step to enable Oceania and Europa CEM® candidates to transition to the full education requirement a compromise has been authorized by the Global CEM Commission for the next two years.

From the 1st January 2013 until 31st December 2015, Oceania and Europa CEM candidates can satisfy the education requirement with a: Bachelors (Baccalaureate) degree in any discipline; or Masters degree in any discipline; or
  • Graduate level qualification specifically in emergency management plus relevant experience e.g.
    • Graduate/Postgraduate Certificate in Emergency Management + 4 years emergency management experience; or
    • Graduate/Postgraduate Diploma in Emergency Management or Advanced Diploma in Emergency Management/Public Safety(Emergency Management) + 2 years emergency management experience.
This interim step will expire at the end of 2015. At this time all Oceania and Europa CEM® candidates must have a Bachelors degree to satisfy the education requirements for the CEM® credential. This will bring Oceania and Europa in line with USA CEM® candidates. more
