ICM: Three Levels of Certification

ICM offers three levels of certification: the Certified Court Manager (CCM) credential, the Certified Court Executive (CCE) credential, and the ICM Fellows Certification. Participants are only eligible for CCE certification if they have achieved CCM status and successfully completed all thirteen CCM and CCE courses. ICM also offers an alternate route to complete the Fellows Program (formerly known as the Court Executive Development Program). In lieu of attending the traditional three-week in-residence program in Williamsburg, a candidate may choose to complete CCE Certification and thereby qualify for the Court Project Phase. An online component prepares students for the Court Project Phase. All course curricula are tied closely to the competencies in the NACM Core, which reflect what court managers need to know and be able to do to address today’s challenges in the courts.

Each certification program is outlined in the diagram.
