CMAC Recertification

Your CMAC Certification

As a CMAC certified professional, you must meet specified requirements in order to maintain and renew your certification every 5 years. The purpose of certification renewal is to provide evidence that you have continued to expand your professional knowledge and to demonstrate continued competency in your field.

CMAC Certification shows that you are in a prestigious group of administers, managers, directors and leaders that have demonstrated competency by obtaining validation through certification.

Recertification Requirements

The CMAC credential is valid for a five (5) year period. To recertify, fifty (50) hours of continuing education are required.

  • Forty (40) of the Fifty (50) hours must be specific to case management, administration, leadership or specific to your field of practice. The remaining ten (10) hours can be general health education related.
  • Ten (10) hours can be non-Case Management or leadership in healthcare related.

NOTE: One (1) continuing education credit (CE) equals one (1) 60-minute hour.
