In March, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, CAMICB extended the CMCA recertification and annual service fee deadlines — for those credential holders scheduled to renew or recertify — from April 1 to August 1. If you’re preparing for this upcoming August 1 deadline, please keep the following points in mind:
Please Contact CAMICB by Email and Fax Only
CAMICB staff members are continuing to work remotely over the coming weeks. We are fully operational, but staff may be unable to monitor and respond to incoming phone calls in a timely manner. If you have general questions, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Specific questions about recertification should be directed to Virginia Pierce, Credentialing Associate, at email@example.com.
Earning Continuing Education Remotely
CAMICB maintains a helpful list of on-demand webinars that are free or low-cost. That listing is available here. CAI offers an extensive library dedicated to webinars available for continuing education credit here. Please note that CAI continues to expand their online programming so be sure to check the CAI website – www.caionline.org – regularly for updates.
CAMICB also offers the option for managers to seek out self-study CE opportunities. Those options should be approved prior to registration or attending. Questions about online courses that have not yet been approved for CE credit can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval consideration. The written request should include a description of the course (including outline, syllabus, or summary) and the estimated length of time.
Credits earned during this one-time extension may be used only once toward recertification. You may not count the same course work for this recertification cycle and the next. Online learning must be interactive. Interactive coursework is defined as requiring proof of participation. Please retain all course completion certificates and proof of attendance. Remember: all recertification activity is subject to audit.
CAMICB will update these policies as the COVID-19 emergency continues to evolve and will keep our credential holders fully informed. We are confident in the resilience of our community and know that we will weather this crisis together. For those of us who are distanced from colleagues and friends, please stay in touch with each other and offer each other support in this challenging time.
