Technician Certification Registry

The Registry is a voluntary program to document your ongoing professional development as an AALAS certified technician/technologist.

The ďRĒ (registered) in front of the certification acronym will be your entitlement of Registry participation. It will be a visible distinction on name tags, resumes, and business cards indicating your dedication to your professional development and to the well being of the animals in your care.

If you obtain AALAS certification at any level, you will automatically become ďregisteredĒ for a 2 year period.

 

Maintaining Your Registry Status

Once you are entered into the Registry, you must obtain the required number of CEUs for your certification level within 2 years (ALAT: 10, LAT: 14, and LATG: 24).

CEUs can be earned by participating in example CE activities. See CE Examples for more information.

Participation is free to AALAS members; non-members are assessed a $40 non-refundable fee. 

If you do not fulfill all requirements for renewing your Registry status, the ďRĒ portion of the ďRegisteredĒ certification acronym will be forfeited. (Example: if you lost your status as an RLAT, your certification would then revert to an LAT.) 

 

How to Submit CEUs

Members can record their CEUs online by logging into the AALAS website and selecting the Online CEU Submission option. Click here to view Online CEU Submission:

CEUs can also be submitted by using the following application:

CEU Submission formhttps://www.aalas.org/media/0a6d80c3-9dfb-4c26-b0e3-1998c774e5c0/501143684/Global/pdf_icon.gif
 

More information about the Technician Certification Registry can be found in the Technician Certification Handbookhttps://www.aalas.org/media/0a6d80c3-9dfb-4c26-b0e3-1998c774e5c0/501143684/Global/pdf_icon.gif. If you have questions about the technician certification program or the Registry, contact the Professional Services department.

 

Audit

The Certification & Registry Board (CRB) committee perform yearly audits of registered technicians. If a technician is selected they will be required to provide supporting documentation for all CEUs submitted. Therefore technicians should maintain all CEU supporting documents for at least 3 years.

To schedule your exam with Prometric, call 800-479-6376 or visit www.prometric.com.

 

When does my Authorization to Test period start?

Those taking a computer exam have 90 days to test, beginning the day their application dates are downloaded to Prometric; start and end dates are displayed on the Authorization to Test letter.
 

What do I need to bring with me on test day?

Be sure to bring your Authorization to Test Letter (the original or the copy) and a valid, government-issued, photo- and signature-bearing ID (a driverís license, a state or government issued ID, or a passport).

Am I allowed to reschedule my exam?

You may reschedule your computer exam appointment provided you call 800-226-7955 by noon Eastern time 5 business days prior to your appointment. Pencil-and-paper exams may not be rescheduled because your authorization is for only one day.

 

Can I cancel my exam date?

AALAS Management Certification 
Certified Manager of Animal Resources

 

Laboratory animal resource managers face many challenges, including an increasingly multicultural workforce, rapidly changing technology, and ever-changing regulations and institutional policies. The Certified Manager of Animal Resources (CMAR) program is designed to raise competency and professionalism in the field of laboratory animal resources management.

The benefits of becoming CMAR certified:

  • You will be recognized as an industry professional
  • Employers often consider certification credentials as a factor in promotions or hiring
  • Certification helps managers evaluate strengths and weaknesses
  • Employees engaged in certification usually have greater longevity in the profession
  • Certification builds confidence and improves performance

The CMAR designation involves a series of four examinations: three exams arranged via an organization called the Institute for Certified Professional Managers (ICPM), and the Animal Resources Exam offered by AALAS.
 

ICPM is offering Administrative Management Society Foundation (AMS Foundation) scholarships for CM certification. Email icpmcm@jmu.edu for more information.

In order to maintain their CMAR designation, CMAR recipients will have biannual requirements of a re-certification fee and a specified number of continuing education credits.

What is the difference between CM and CMAR?

The CMAR is a certification for experienced managers of animal laboratory facilities, while the CM is a generalist certification for all types of managers, at all levels, and in all fields. The CMAR credential is earned when a candidate successfully passes all three of the Certified Manager exams administered by ICPM and the AALAS Animal Resources exam.

 

What is the difference between LATG and Animal Resources exams?

 

The LATG and the Animal Resources exams differ both in content and style. Although both exams focus on three main areas of knowledge (Animal Husbandry, Facility Management and Animal Health and Welfare) each exam emphasizes different aspect of these areas. Managers are involved in development of programs while technologists are generally responsible for implementation. The AR exam focuses on a managerial perspective of these topics and therefore the exam contains decision-making and analytical questions, as well as some fact-based questions. The LATG focuses on the procedural aspects of these areas, and contains fact-based questions only.

 

How do I apply to enter the program and whom do I contact?

 

Application to take the CM exams is made by completing the CM application form and submitting a nonrefundable application fee to ICPM. Application forms can be completed online at www.icpm.biz or can be requested in paper or downloadable file formats by phone or email. ICPM also accepts the AALAS CMAR application as a substitute for the CM application.

Application to take the Animal Resources exam is made by completing the AALAS CMAR application and submitting a nonrefundable application fee along with the exam fee.

 

I do not have a bachelorís degree; can I apply to the program?

 

Yes! Candidates holding an associateís degree must document 8 years of work experience in the laboratory animal science field, of which 3 years must be in a managerial capacity. Candidates applying with a high school or GED diploma must document 10 years of work experience in the laboratory animal science field, of which 3 years must be in a managerial capacity.

 

Do I need to apply to both ICPM & AALAS?

 

Yes, but ICPM accepts the AALAS CMAR application as a substitute for the CM application.

 

How do I schedule exams?

 

To schedule the management exams contact ICPM either by phone or e-mail, at 540-568-3247 or icpmcm@jmu.edu.

To schedule the Animal Resources exam contact AALAS, by either phone or e-mail at 901-754-8620 or nancy.dorcy@aalas.org
