IAAO designations signify exceptional competence. Earning a professional designation offers tangible and intangible benefits, which may include a salary increase or additional responsibilities. The benefits include increased confidence and credibility. Pride is perhaps the greatest benefit of all, in that you proved to yourself that you could set a goal and fulfill the requirements necessary for attaining it.
IAAO Designees are required to fulfill continuing education requirements in order to maintain their designation. Credit hours earned must be submitted to IAAO during a designee's five-year cycle.
