Sneak peek: Is certification right for you? Factors to consider when deciding

Just a few years ago, few employers required certification for new case managers. Today, more than one-third seek this stamp of approval when they bring someone new on board.

The Commission for Case Management Certification® (CCMC) reports on its website that 36% of employers required case managers to be board certified in 2009, up from 26% in 2004.
 
The number of case managers seeking certification is also on the upswing. For example, more than 30,000 case managers have achieved Certified Case Manager® (CCM) certification, which is only one type of certification open to the profession, according to the CCMC website. The Case Management Society of America website lists more than 20 organizations that offer different types of certification to case managers.
