National Certification Commission in Chemistry and Chemical
was formed in 1977 to recognize practitioners who strive to
maintain their professional competence through participation
in continuing education and related professional development
activities. Those who qualify are issued certificates as Certified
Professional Chemists or Certified Chemical Engineers. Recent
graduates can also qualify as Certifees-in-Training, and those
who may not yet have sufficient credits for certification can
be enrolled annually for up to three years until they do.
Certification is voluntary and is valid for a three-year interval, during which time certifees are expected to continue their professional development and submit annual applications in order to qualify for recertification thereafter. Membership in any organization is not required. Register of participants is printed annually.
The AIC also offers certification to chemical technicians.
