EMPOWER CEM®/AEM Study Circle Program
The CEM Study Circle connects those working toward the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) CEM or AEM certifications. The program helps participants understand each component of the CEM application, and face the CEM exam with confidence. In addition to providing moral support, the regularly scheduled study circles help participants take incremental steps toward full completion of their application. Our program helps break down the application process into manageable tasks, and provides an element of accountability when meeting with a peer group to maintain application momentum.
The group meets virtually using teleconference and file sharing technology to engage in peer review discussions, review, debate, and to offer constructive feedback on application drafts. In addition, we arrange time with CEM Commissioners for periodic question and answer sessions based on questions raised during the study circle.
CEM Study Circle sessions are developed by the CEM Study Circle Coordinator and generally follow the schedule below. We conduct the sessions over a 6-month timeframe, with the application deadlines in mind.
