Certification renewal is required every two years from the date of certification. To continue to be certified, you must remain an active IACCM paid member and have completed the equivalent of 40 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) over the prior two year period.
This can be achieved through a variety of activities, primary examples being:
- IACCM training programs
- IACCM conferences
- IACCM member meetings
- Ask the Expert sessions or webinars
- Relevant training or events that have direct value to personal development and the field of contract and commercial management from other respected organizations
- Related LinkedIn articles, resources sent by line manager, internal research and market reports etc.
Contributions to the professional community:
- Research conducted
- Articles written
- Training programs developed
- Professional mentoring
CPD is a self-managed honor process. IACCM offers a tracking tool for your CPD recording under your IACCM membership account, which can be found at My IACCM > My CPD (or by clicking here). The certified member needs to maintain a sufficient record of continuing education activities and associated credits/hours, which are periodically verified by IACCM.
CPD points are usually manually registered by members via their accounts.* Please add 1 CPD point per each hour of lecture/instruction/seminar/webinar/related reading you have undertaken, excluding networking time at physical events.
Once you gained 40 points you can renew your certification up to 6 months before the expiry date, and it will extend for 2 years from the expiry date. Although we will save all CPD points that you enter, you will be unable to see any CPD points in our tracker that were earned outside this period. The reason for this is that we use CPD points to determine your eligibility to renew your certification, either now or in the future, so the cumulative total of points visible is limited to the current recording period only.
In the event your certification has lapsed for more than a two-year period, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration to reactivate your certification. This requires a statement from you regarding your continued activities in Contract and Commercial Management during the lapse along with your general compliance and confirmation that going forward you will adhere to IACCM’s requirements for certification renewal.
*only those IACCM events attended live will be added automatically.
