Certification vs Membership

There is often confusion with regard to AEE Certification and the AEE Membership as well as Chapter Members.

AEE Membership
AEE Membership is taken out directly with AEE through their online platform. This membership is renewable annually in order to maintain membership status. AEE members receive great discounts on their conferences and reference books, and have regular educational webinars and online training available to earn AEE renewal credits. Any person or company can become an AEE member – there is no prerequisite.

AEE grants free membership for one year when a candidate passes an AEE exam for the first time. Thereafter, AEE membership is renewable.

AEE Certification
AEE Certification is only awarded to candidates that successfully complete their AEE training program, pass the exam for the program, and is approved for Certification by the International Certification Board. This Certification must be renewed every three years through IEPA, or directly with the AEE if preferred. Should Certification renewal be done directly with AEE, a shipping and handling fee will be payable to IEPA directly.

AEE Chapter Membership
Chapter Membership is available directly from the Chapters, and their renewal terms, and membership availability, is as per the chapter’s membership criteria. IEPA is not able to assist with Chapter membership. Contact your closest or preferred chapter directly.

Certification Renewal Activities

AEE Certified Professionals are required to demonstrate the development of Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) as a condition for certification renewal. The CPC requirements will be satisfied when course providers conduct courses that will enhance and improve professional skills in the area certified.

Each certified professional is required to obtain Continuing Education Units (CEU) or Professional Development Hours (PDH) for each renewal period of 3 years. A total of 10 renewal credits are required.

IEPA reviews training courses, seminars, workshops and conferences for applicable CEUs. All SAEEC conferences, workshops, and seminars qualify for CEUs. Enquire from IEPA should you be unsure, or should you become aware of an opportunity to obtain CEUs at an event.
