Welcome to the CE Resources page for CAI Chapters!
Here you will find information and resources to help you navigate CAMICB's recent update to its CE approval policy. That update requires all CE programs, without exception, be approved by CAMICB's CE Review Committee in order for those programs to qualify for credit toward CMCA recertification.
Below is a list of FAQs, the CE Review Committee meeting schedule, links to the Chapter CE Course Provider Application in fillable PDF, as well as links to templates of an Attendance Roster and Certificate of Attendance that Chapters can download, personalize and use as their own. And, don't forget to download the CMCA Exam Prep Tools infographic to share with aspiring CMCAs.
For more information, watch the webinar archive of CE Course Provider Approval for CAI Chapters.
Frequently Asked Questions
When does this policy go into effect? Programs offered after June 1, 2018 will require pre-approval by CAMICB in order for CMCAs to receive credit toward recertification.
Do I have to submit the presentation with the application? Presentations are appreciated, but not required. For guidance with regard to presentations, see “Helpful Hints" on page 3 of the Chapter CE Course Provider Application.
So, if I don't need to submit the presentation, what needs to be included with the application? Include materials that show as much about the program content as possible, indicate the number of CE credits awarded, and provide information that the speaker is qualified to present the material. Refer to the “Application Checklist" on page 1 of the Chapter CE Course Provider Application.
We don't use print materials anymore, so I don't have a flyer or a brochure. What can I submit instead? PDFs of your email promotions or web site pages containing the necessary information listed above will suffice.
How long does it take to get my programs approved? Applications are reviewed monthly according to the following schedule. If your Chapter needs immediate approval, that’s no problem at all. Expedited approval of your programs can be turned around in 2-3 days.

Does our chapter need to apply for approval for CAI classes, like the PDMP courses?
No, it is not necessary for Chapters to apply for programs that are developed by CAI.
Does our chapter conference & expo qualify for CE credits?
The education portion of the conference qualifies for CE credits. For example, Day 1 of the program offers 5 hours of CE and 1 hour of expo time then Day 1 is worth 5 CE credits.
When can chapters expect approved programs to be listed on the CAMICB website? The program roster of CAMICB approved programs is uploaded monthly within 3-5 business days following the CE Review Committee meeting.
What kind of follow-up is expected after the program? The following steps aim to protect Chapters and CMCAs in the unlikely event of audit:
- Submit an Attendance Roster that includes, but is not limited to, full name, company, and email address within 45 days following the program.
- Retain student attendance records for a period of five (5) years. Download the sample Attendance Roster to help track event attendees.
- Issue a certificate or other verification of attendance for CMCAs to submit along with the CMCA Recertification Applications. Download and personalize the sample Certificate of Attendance with your Chapter logo and contact information.
