To help case managers become certified quickly, the Chicago-based Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC) has revised and updated its Web site: www.ccmcertification.org. The site features a brief tour designed to facilitate the certification process. The application form, as well as the recently published newsletter, can be downloaded from the site.
"The new Web site responds to the health care industry’s need for certified case managers," Susan L. Gilpin, CEO, announced. "An increasing percentage of employers are requesting certified case managers; certification is regularly specified in career advertisements; states are beginning to require certification; and we are responding to those needs."
CCMC recently was granted accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), the only national accreditation body for private certification organizations in all disciplines. An NCCA panel of experts reviewed all aspects of the Commission for Case Management certification process, including validation of the methodology used in the certification examination.
The NCCA helps to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the accreditation of certification programs that assess professional competency.
