The National Academy of Certified Care Managers is a non-profit national credentialing organization founded in 1995. The purpose of  NACCM is to advance the quality of care management services to consumers by assuring that care managers are competent to perform the full range of care management tasks. This is accomplished through a validated, standardized examination that tests the skills, knowledge, and practice ethics of professionals providing care management services.

NACCM contracts with Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) for application review, exam maintenance, administration, and scoring for the Care Manager Certification Examination.  PTC was originally established in 1983 and has since provided services focused on the measurement aspects of human resources, including the design, development, and administration of tests and testing programs for professional organizations, associations, and certification and licensing boards.

All eligible Candidates who pass the examination will be credentialed and acknowledged by the Academy as a CMC (Care Manager, Certified).  In order to maintain the CMC, care managers must apply for renewal every three years documenting ongoing care management practice, professional development, and continuing education.
