Q. If my company is not a CERC member can I earn my designation?
A. Level I is open to everyone. Only members in good standing are eligible to take Level II and III of the designation program.

A. No you hold the designation.  But to be eligible, your employer must be a member of CERC and you must be either a full, associate, or personal member, and you must maintain your designation.

Q. What happens to my designation if I change employers?
