Case Management Focus: To Renew or Not To Renew Your Case Manager Certification


Sarasota, FL ( -- Certification is an achievement that many case management professionals strive to achieve. On the upside, earning a national certification is a badge of honor; it shows that we are part of a profession, have standards of practice and a code of ethics that guide our practice, and commit to ongoing learning. On the downside, certification is expensive and requires continued investments in time and money. With fees of over $300, renewing is a decision that many face and struggle with. Here are a few questions I ask myself when I continue my certification(s).

  1. Am I still doing the work that led me to obtain a specific certification?
  2. Is a specific certification required to do my work?
  3. If I have multiple certifications, do they overlap? Can I let one or more go and still do my work?

Today there are many certifications case managers can achieve. If you have not looked at them recently, take time to explore what is out there and decide if they meet your current and career goals. If you are employed, does your employer require a specific certification?

To help case management professionals choose the best certification to meet their needs, I wrote a special report titled, Stepping Up to Certification. This report reviews the current certifications so you can make an informed decision. Here is a link that you can download to examine the information. Feel free to share this with your employers and your case management colleagues.

I hope this article helps you decide as you look at the certifications you will renew.
