CEM – “Alphabet Soup”
PhD, CPA, CEM, simply letters following names, but carrying much more weight than simply a few more characters in an e-mail signature. Because when you think about it, would you invite a surgeon to cut into you if they didn’t have a MD? Would you hire an accountant if they weren’t a certified CPA, CA or similar?
These designations ensure we get the best possible care and service, from individuals who have diligently earned the right to perform these specific duties. Through training and education, they have met or exceeded the meticulous requirements of their profession. Furthermore, these professionals weren’t trained by just anyone, but by accredited trainers and experts who meet or exceed the strict requirements set out by their associations.
