When your application package has been received, you will be sent a letter of acknowledgement confirming receipt. From there, your application package goes to the IPEM Accreditation Application Review Committee for review.

Who makes up the IPEM Accreditation Application Review Committee?

The IPEM Accreditation Application Review Committee consists of the following:

  • IEMA Director - or a designee appointed by the Director
  • IESMA President - or a designee appointed by President
  • IEMA Training Program Manager
  • IESMA Professional Standards Committee Chair
  • IESMA Training and Education Committee Chair

Review Process

The IPEM Accreditation Application Review Committee meets on a quarterly basis (4 times per year) to review applications. The committee reviews submitted applications and renewal applications to verify that each meets the requirements established by the program. Upon verification and approval, letters of notification are sent to each successful applicant advising him/her of approval. A second letter of notification is sent to each successful candidate's supervisor.

IEMA presents each successful candidate an Illinois Professional Emergency Manager Certificate and a lapel pin at the annual IEMA state conference. The certificate is valid for a three-year period.

What if Something is Missing?

If an application is denied, the applicant is notified in writing of the reason. Upon notification, the applicant has twelve months to correct the deficient areas of the application package and re-submit with corrections.

If the applicant does not re-submit within the twelve-month period, the application is rejected.

Applicants are invited to submit a new, complete, and separate application in the future. Rejection of an application is not the end of the matter, merely a step in the process.
