Industry Certification in Contract Management–Federal

All ICCM designees are required to renew by December 31st of the second year following certification, and every two years thereafter. For example, in 2015, those who earned their designation in 2013 are affected.

Renewal Fees:

  • Memeber: $50
  • Nonmember: $100

Renewal requires documentation of 80 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE). The 80 CPEs are equivalent to the 80 Continuous Learning Points (CLP) as required for maintaining DAWIA and FAC-C certifications. CPE may be earned in a number of ways. See the NCMA CPE Guide for details.
