Events in Chapter History


The Institute of Hazardous Materials Managers founded the Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers in 1985 to foster networking and educational opportunities. Originally the Academy was a part of the Institute, a position which is unusual among professional membership organization and the certification programs they support. In 1995, the Academy incorporated as a separate organization although it remains closely affiliated with the Institute.

The Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers envisions a world where the natural environment is unburdened by pollution, workers are exposed only to healthy and safe conditions, and hazardous materials are used and transported safely and efficiently.

The Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers will foster the professional development of hazardous materials managers by offering opportunities for education, facilitating peer group interaction, and establishing the CHMM credential as the standard of excellence in the hazardous materials management profession.


Our mission will be achieved by working with Academy Chapters, the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management, and other professional organizations to link industry, government and academia, and achieve the Academy vision for the future
