ACM™ Recertification

YOUR ACM™ CERTIFICATION

As an ACM™ certified professional, you must meet specified requirements in order to maintain and renew your certification every 4 years. The purpose of certification renewal is to provide evidence that you have continued to expand your professional knowledge and to demonstrate continued competency in your field.

Certification says a lot about you! Your ACM™ credential:

  • Demonstrates your engagement. Earning your Certification through the ACMA shows your peers, supervisors, and patients your commitment to your chosen career and the case management profession at-large, as well as your ability to perform to set standards.
  • Strengthens the profession’s image. The ACM™ Certification seeks to grow, promote, and develop certified professionals who can serve as role models for quality clinical practice.
  • Validated your accomplishments. ACM™ Certification is a reflection of personal achievement because you have validated your skill set, specific to the job role you perform, by meeting the set standard.
  • Builds your self-esteem. Certification through the ACM™ is a step toward defining yourself beyond a job description or academic degree while gaining a sense of personal satisfaction.
  • Provides recognition. As an ACM™ certificant, expect increased acknowledgement from your peers for staying on top of best practices through education and training in your professional career.

The ACM™ credential is valid for a four (4) year period. To recertify, forty (40) hours of continuing education are required.
