Revised version of CEM®/AEM℠ application now available

from IAEM

A new CEM®/AEM℠ Application has been uploaded onto the IAEM website, and all candidates should note the following changes in the requirements:
  • Previously, the work experience requirement stated that candidates had to participate in an actual disaster or full scale exercise. The commission has made the following changes to the work experience requirement:
    • To fulfill the work experience requirement, candidates may now participate in a full-scale exercise or two separate functional exercises by planning, conducting or coordinating and/or having a major disaster/emergency management role during the exercise. OR
    • Obtain experience in the preparation, response, recovery and mitigation phases of an actual declared disaster, or a major public event such as major sporting event, state visit, or special event. A special event is defined as "a non-routine event that places a strain on community resources and requires planning, preparedness and mitigation efforts by emergency management and public safety professionals."
  • Professional Contribution L has changed from "State or Province Emergency Management Certification or Registration" to "Professional Certification related to Emergency Management."
  • Until further notice, Canadian candidates may continue to use the degree waiver in place of the education requirement by substituting extra years of work experience.
  • It is the candidate's responsibility to provide documentation verifying all sections of the application. Candidates may no longer write the name of someone who can verify the information on their behalf (as was documented in the professional contribution section of the application).
  • The essay scenario has changed and can be accessed in the CEM®/AEM℠ Application. Candidates who have already submitted their application or are in the process of resubmitting supplemental documentation due to the first review being found incomplete, may continue to use the old essay scenario.
Candidates should note that starting July 1, 2014, applications must meet the new requirements outlined above. The North American Application Review Commission is meeting Sept. 11-14, 2014. All applications must be received at IAEM HQ by Aug. 15, 2014, to be included in this review. more
