The Commission for Case Manager Certification’s (the Commission) CCM® & CDMS credentials are NCCA Accredited.
The Commission's programs are in compliance with the NCCA’s Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs. NCCA is the accrediting body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE). Since 1977, the NCCA has been accrediting certifying programs based on the highest quality standards in professional certification to ensure the programs adhere to modern standards of practice in the certification industry.

ICE's mission is to advance credentialing through education, standards, research, and advocacy to ensure competence across professions and occupations. NCCA was founded as a commission whose mission is to help ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the accreditation of a variety of certification programs that assess professional competence. NCCA uses a peer review process to: establish accreditation standards; evaluate compliance with these standards; recognize organizations/programs which demonstrate compliance; and serve as a resource on quality certification.
For the Commission, this means it has renewed its place among an elite group of healthcare certification organizations accredited by ICE. This means that the Commission’s certifications, the CCM & CDMS, demonstrate an individual’s professional competence, enhances their employability and career advancement and ultimately protects the public.
The Commission validates its CCM & CDMS certification exams through research which helps ensure the exams continues to be relevant to today’s practice.
