AHMP, IHMM Form 'New, Dynamic Relationship'

The Alliance of Hazardous Materials ProfessionalsTM (AHMP), formerly the Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers, and the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) on Thursday jointly announced an updated affiliation agreement.

Originally established in 1996, the affiliation agreement has been restructured to establish what the groups call "a new and dynamic relationship" that will help the organizations increase the number of professionals who hold the Certified Hazardous Materials Manager® (CHMM®) and Certified Hazardous Materials Practitioner® (CHMP®) credentials, and who also are AHMP members.

Noting that IHMM has maintained its CHMM credential as the industry standard for 25 years, AHMP President Harry S. Kemp, CHMM, said the agreement renewal better positions both organizations for long-term success.

"This agreement highlights each group's dedication to enhancing professionalism in the field of hazardous materials management and the overall environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) industry," Kemp said. "AHMP's Board of Directors looks forward to continuing the association's long-term relationship with IHMM, to working with IHMM to promote their credentials, and to advocating for our members before employers and government agencies."

IHMM Board of Director Chair Elizabeth Pfeiffer, CHMM, agreed. "The new AHMP-IHMM affiliation agreement continues a very long and successful partnership," she said. "Through this agreement, AHMP is demonstrating its continued commitment to supporting the Institute's credentials and certification programs, including the CHMM, the Certified Hazardous Materials Practitioner® (CHMP®), and the Hazardous Materials Manager-in-Training® (HMMT®) programs.

Kemp added that as a result of the renewal, AHMP will continue advocating on behalf of IHMM credential holders before relevant federal and sate government agencies. "When and where it can, AHMP will support its membership and local chapters in promotion of IHMM credential holders to government decision-makers at all levels," Kemp said. "These activities will increase the number of credential holders, strengthen AHMP's membership base, and solidify IHMM's position as the administrator of several essential EHS&S industry credentials."
