Recertifying Your IHMM Credential Is Easy
Now it’s as easy as logging in to your online MyIHMM account at www.ihmm.org, clicking on the Menu button, opening the form, and entering each Employment and Professional Development recertification activity claim in a separate block.
IHMM Recertification Applications are designed to store your activities as you enter them throughout your 5-year recertification cycle. Entering your activities periodically throughout your cycle helps keep recertification simple.
Once you’ve entered and saved the 200 points needed to recertify, you’ll see the Confirm Application Submission section appear. Click on it, answer a few short questions, and that’s it. You’ve submitted your recertification!
Within MINUTES, you’ll be sent an e-mail notice that you have successfully recertified (an e-mail copy of your credential’s Letter of Compliance for proof of certification valid until your hard copy letter and display certificate arrive), or instructions on how to proceed if you are randomly selected for audit.
Don’t forget, IHMM’s friendly staff of Certification Coordinators is available to help you every weekday, should you need any kind of assistance from logging in to how to classify a complicated activity claim.

This is the center of education and training for IHMM certificants and prospective certificants.

IHMM Student CHMM
Congratulations to Eric Littlefield and Michael Ferrucci in passing their Student CHMM exams last week! IHMM now has 48 applicants for this credential and it is growing steadily each week. The IHMM Board created a pilot program in 2019 that allows us to reach into colleges and universities with certain established majors and courses of studies that may, one day, lead the student to a profession for which the full CHMM is ideal.
Thank you for joining us in our communities of practice!
If you are nearing a decision about retiring, let us know. IHMM has an Emeritus status that we can transition you into, rather than simply ending your commitment to your credential and communities of practice. You’ve earned your retirement and your Emeritus status with IHMM as well.

What is the Hazardous Materials Society and why is it here?
Over the winter and spring of 2019, the IHMM Board of Directors decided to form the Hazardous Materials Society [HMS] to do four basic things in support of IHMM’s more than 9,000 certificants.
- Developing and delivering the highest quality education and training programs serving the hazardous materials | dangerous goods | environment | health & safety communities of practice by engaging the very best programs from around the nation and the world and presenting them in one platform
- Providing the strongest Networking platform in the nation, Higher Logic, that facilitates our communities of practice to be able to collaborate on their professional challenges as well as exchange information and ideas that benefit their future development
- Providing Conferences that provide opportunities for us to gather together around the nation and the world to learn together and enjoy each other’s perspectives on all of our professional challenges, and to enrich our experiences together.
- Providing Affinity programs that leverage our vast numbers and reach into incredible companies around the world to reduce the costs of many of the things we buy.
Between February and May of 2019, IHMM Executive Director Eugene Guilford and IHMM Treasurer Andrea Schuessler met with Bruce Donato and Chip Deale of AHMP to explain what IHMM was doing and why, and to enlist AHMP’s support. IHMM and AHMP issued a joint press release of support on April 9, 2019 that you can head here.
On December 9, 2019, IHMM Board Chair Richie Spangler and HMS Board Chair Robert West issued a joint press statement announcing the launch of the Hazardous Materials Society, that you can read here.
Every IHMM Today and EHS Professional sent since May 14, 2019, has had information in it about HMS – more than 60 individual e-newsletters – including this current edition of IHMM Today.
IHMM’s Board created the Hazardous Materials Society to serve the needs of IHMM certificants in the four areas listed above. Further, IHMM’s Board stated that IHMM’s certificants can access the services on the HMS site at no additional cost.
