If certification is not earned (or expected to be earned) within three years of the candidates start date, an extension may be requested to complete the requirements as long as the candidate has three or less courses to complete and the request for extension is made prior to the expiration date. If both of the criteria are met, the candidate may request an extension following the below requirements:
All remaining requirements must be completed within the grace period that is determined by the CEM Commission. If courses are not completed within the determined grace period, the candidate will lose credit for each successfully passed exam at its three-year anniversary date and must re-test on exams passed more than 3 years from that date.
Once the request is received, IAEE will present it to the CEM Commission for their approval and send the candidate an email with their decision within 2 weeks.
