Only those individuals who have completed the following courses, which are offered by the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF), are qualified to take the CCISM Examination.
It is suggested that the above mentioned courses have been taken within the last 5 years to ensure greatest relevance, however, that time frame is not mandatory.
Additionally, ICISF offers Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM): A Practical Review textbook, which can be purchased thru the ICISF CISM Bookstore. This book is not required to take the CCISM Exam, but is a helpful review.
Remember the exam is open book but resource materials should be reviewed and coordinated for easy access prior to actually accessing the exam.
