What is a Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM)?

Certified Consulting Meteorologist - American Meteorological Society

The American Meteorological Society has established high standards of technical competence, character, and experience for those who seek to provide advice and consultation in meteorology. The principal purpose of the program is to enable users of meteorological services to select consultants with greater confidence in the quality and reliability of the products and services they will receive. 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. To earn the Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) credential, a degreed meteorologist must apply for the designation, be recommended by three associates, pass a stringent written examination, and finally pass an oral examination before a national board of examiners. To date, there are only approximately 250 CCMs active in the United States.
