The Debate on CEM Certificates in Emergency Management

Below is a current article discussing the merits of obtaining a Certified Emergency Manager (CEM) certificate for professionals in the Emergency and Crisis Management fields.

In establishing the certification process the IAEM created a standard body of knowledge for emergency managers, then set requirements for them to meet to become certified.

The certifications have evolved, but today both the CEM and the related Associate Emergency Manager (AEM) certifications require 200 training hours, an essay, three reference letters and an exam. CEM certification also requires a four-year college degree, three years’ experience in emergency management and significant professional contributions.
