I hereby apply for certification as a Certified Case Manager (CCM), a voluntary professional credential sponsored by the Commission for Case Manager Certification (CCMC). I understand that certification depends upon my satisfying all of the criteria for knowledge and experience established by the commission, and that CCMC is the sole judge of my eligibility for certification and that I have no right to question its discretion in granting or denying certification. This includes the submission of all required documents and references.
If, in the sole exercise of its discretion, CCMC extends certification to me, I agree to abide by the Rules of Conduct, as found within the Code of Professional Conduct for Case Managers (Code), which I have read and understand. I also understand that any false, inaccurate, or misleading statements included here will constitute grounds for the suspension or revocation of the CCM designation awarded on the basis of the information contained herein.
As an inducement to the commission and its committees to investigate and reach a determination regarding my character, reputation, and fitness for certification, I hereby release, discharge, and exonerate the commission and its committees, members, agents, and representatives, and any person or entity furnishing documents, records, or other information, from any and all liability of every kind and nature arising out of the furnishing, inspection, or use of such documents, records, or information.
I understand that information submitted as part of the application, certification and certification renewal processes becomes the property of the commission and will not be released to outside parties unless authorized by the applicant/certificant or unless required by law. I also understand that individual score reports are released to me as a candidate and are not released to any institution or employer. Furthermore, I agree that for research and statistical purposes only, data resulting from the certification process may be used in an anonymous/unidentifiable manner.
I further understand that the commission does provide a database listing all certificants on its website, which is updated periodically, for the use of the public, and that the commission also receives and responds to requests for information about the certification status of those holding its credential.
I have read and understand the CCMC Code of Professional Conduct (Principles and Rules of Conduct). To qualify for certification, you must be able to answer yes truthfully.
I understand and agreed to this statement of understanding.
