The CCM designation is issued by AMS to highly qualified meteorologists providing research and services to a wide variety of users of weather information, including agriculture, business, industry, and various sectors of government.  To earn the CCM credential, a meteorologist must be recommended by three associates, pass a stringent written examination, and pass an oral examination before a national board of examiners.  The CCM designation is granted only to those who demonstrate a broad background in meteorology together with detailed knowledge in a particular field of specialization.  CCMs must demonstrate exemplary qualities of character and devotion to high professional standards.  CCMs are highly regarded by their peers in meteorology.  They are considered experts in the application of weather information to a host of practical challenges ranging from specialized forecasts to engineering design support and expert testimony on weather-related court cases.  Certification enables users of meteorological services to select consultants or employees with greater confidence in the quality and reliability of the products or services they will receive.
