(PRWEB) March 03, 2017
The American Case Management Association (ACMA) is pleased to announce more Accredited Case Manager (ACM™) Certification testing sites are now available.
Previously, there were 185 testing sites nationwide that ACM™ candidates could access. That number has nearly doubled, as case management professionals now have more than 300 locations to take the exam. Candidates will likely find a testing site closer to their desired location, and many sites are now open every Saturday as well. Candidates who have existing testing appointments will see no change, as they’ll continue to test at their scheduled time and location.
The ACM™ is the industry standard for Case Management professionals and promotes industry-wide competency standards through a uniform national certification exam. Credentialed individuals must successfully complete both a multiple-choice component and a discipline-specific simulation component.
ACMA holds the position that “nurses and social workers with 36 months of health delivery system experience should have their Accredited Case Manager credential, ACM™, to practice Health Delivery System Case Management. ACM™ exam eligibility requires a minimum of twelve (12) months of Health System Case Management experience.”
