Certified Emergency Manager (CEM) and Associate Emergency Manager (AEM)

Certified Emergency Manager Qualification

The International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) created the certification program for emergency managers to raise and maintain professional standards; it is a program to certify achievements within the profession.  Any emergency management professional or student who meets the requirements is welcome to participate.  (Read more about the Certified Emergency Manager qualification at the IAEM website.)

Current students and graduates of the Millersville MSEM program are eligible to sit for the CEM/AEM exam depending upon prior experience in the emergency management field.  The CEM qualification is recognition of educational and professional attainments, experience and judgment.

Successful completion of the CEM/AEM exam does not guarantee certification; individuals must submit the other required documentation to IAEM in order to achieve certification.  The exam is step number 1 and the supporting documents need to be submitted within one year of exam completion.
