Certification Exam Reimbursement Award

    To promote the growth of the Certified Records Manager (CRM) and Information Governance Professional (IGP) certifications, the ARMA Atlanta Chapter will reimburse examination costs to a limited number of new CRM and IGP holders each year.

    Award reimbursement is solely at the discretion of the Chapter Board of Directors and is contingent on the funds available for this purpose. The goal is to disburse four awards per Chapter year. Applicants may apply for one award per Chapter year.

    Reimbursement will be for the successful completion of exams only. Applicants will not be reimbursed for application costs, retest fees, or exam preparation material. Reimbursement for successful CRM candidates will not exceed $650; reimbursement for successful IGP candidates will not exceed $599.


    Applicants must have been a member of the ARMA Atlanta Chapter, in good standing, for the entire certification pursuit period. This begins at acceptance to sit for the test, through taking and passing each exam, and finally receiving certification.

    Applicants must have achieved certification within the Chapter year for which they’re applying for reimbursement (July 1 through June 30).


    Complete the application below. In addition to indicating the month and year you successfully completed each exam, please provide:

    1. Proof of Chapter membership throughout the exam testing period.
    2. A letter from your employer stating that your employer will not reimburse the cost of certification.
    3. A letter of certification from the testing organization verifying that you have successfully achieved certification.


    Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the Chapter year. Applicants will be notified of their award status within 30 days of submission.
