Certified Military Community Executive (CMCE)

If you’ve made the commitment to make military MWR/Services your career, you may want to consider obtaining your CMCE certification.

Certification Program

The Certified Military Community Executive (CMCE) Program is a mark of distinction and achievement. Those who have earned the CMCE designation are recognized as achieving the highest levels of job knowledge and leadership in the area of military MWR/Services, and receive the honor of placing the CMCE initials after their name.

The CMCE Certification Program is the only military Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) certification program that is nationally registered by the National Certification Commission.

The Steps to Certification

The IMCEA Professional Member must submit the completed CMCE Petition for Recognition form with all attachments and $50 processing fee to the IMCEA National Office. The IMCEA Certification Committee will evaluate the Petition for appropriate education, job experience and IMCEA Association credit points. The IMCEA Certification Committee will notify the petitioner of eligibility or ineligibility for the written certification examination.

If the petitioner is recognized as qualified for the certification examination, the petitioner will be invited to download the CMCE Study Guide and join in the next Review before the examination.

If the petitioner does not qualify for the written examination, the petitioner will be notified by the IMCEA National Office and encouraged to resubmit the Petition for CMCE Recognition after one year. Written examination is administered only to petitioners who are recognized as qualified to take the CMCE Exam.

To attain the CMCE designation, petitioners must accumulate an established number of education and job experience points, as well as achieve a minimum passing score on a comprehensive written examination. To find out more about the eligibility and points requirements to take the exam, download the entire Steps to CMCE Certification.

Once you are comfortable that you have the credit points required, download the Petition for CMCE Recognition.

Re-Certification Program

To remain certified as a CMCE, designees must re-certify every three years. Re-certification is accomplished through accumulation of 20 additional points since the original certification, or since the last re-certification.

CMCE Revocation

The CMCE designation may be revoked in the event a CMCE does not accumulate the required 20 points unless extenuating circumstances exist and the deficiency can be readily overcome.

To re-certify, download the Petition for CMCE Recertification.
