What are the benefits of certification?
Individuals who pursue professional certification can expect to experience a number of benefits as a result of their efforts. CRM and IGP candidates cite the following as reasons for pursuing certification:
*Additional knowledge gained through the certification process
*Tangible documentation of their knowledge and experience
*Enhanced professionalism and personal growth
*Increased self-confidence in solving RIM problems
*Potential for increased job responsibility with commensurate salary benefits.
Certification programs can be established at many different levels. Advanced certifications are more selective and have more extensive requirements. They are more difficult to achieve and require additional financial investments and substantial preparation time.
Certification in the CRM/RIM field
In the records and information management profession one of the primary certifications is the Certified Records Manager (CRM). The CRM is designed for experienced professionals with management-level responsibilities. ARMA International has contracted with the Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM) to be its certifying body.
