AIIM and the ICRM announce the establishment of a strategic partnership to advance best practices in Records and Information Management (RIM) through professional certification and training.
This partnership will serve the RIM community by creating new paths to ICRM certification while maintaining current standards and ensuring that the ICRM exam, in particular Part 5, encompasses current technologies and RIM best practices.
ICRM candidates who successfully complete the AIIM ERM Master designation can now receive credit for passing Part 5 of the ICRM exam. CRAs and CRMs will also receive special access to other select AIIM education courses and resources to meet their ongoing continuing education requirements.
Jesse Wilkins, Director of Professional Development at AIIM, noted that “The pace of technological innovation continues to increase, and with it the challenges presented to the records professional. We believe that the AIIM ERM Master Class provides a timely and relevant path to modern records management and the best approach for addressing current challenges. We respect the ICRM path to excellence and we are pleased to contribute to that process.”
“For more than 40 years, the ICRM has proudly set the standard by which RIM professionals could be measured, accredited and recognized according to criteria of experience and capability established by their peers. We are excited to add AIIM as one of our strategic partners and to recognize their ERM Master Class as one such standard for demonstrating knowledge of the topics on the ICRM Part 5 Technology exam.” said Wendy McLain, President of ICRM.
