Certification Fees / Fee Policies



ATMAE Certification has required fees for examinations, for initial certification, and for annual renewal. After initial certification, certified members will be prompted via email to renew their annual ATMAE Membership dues and Certification Renewal each year. To remain certified, annual membership and certification dues need to be kept current. 


Exam Fees

  • Individual Student Examination Fee: $25
  • Individual Professional Examination Fee: $50
    • All individual exams must be paid before the exams are set up.  There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Group Exams (or Group of Individual Exams) with Reporting of Group Results for Program Assessment
    • 1 to 15 examinees: $25 per Examinee
    • 16 to 45 examinees:  $20 per Examinee
    • 46+ examinees: $15 per Examinee


Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG & CSEG), Certified Manufacturing Specialist (CMS & CSMS), Certified Technology Manager (CTM & CSTM), and Certified Technical Professional (CTP & CSTP) Program Fees

  • Initial Certification Fee (paid at time of initial application within one year of passing the exam):
    • Student/Graduating Student: $25
    • Professional: $50

  • Annual Renewal Fee (paid at end of first year and each year thereafter): $35 for professionals and $25 for students per certification held NOTE: Retired ATMAE Certified members only need to pay the annual ATMAE Retired member dues of $25; retired certified members DO NOT pay an annual certification renewal fee.

  • ATMAE Membership Fee: Certified ATMAE members must also renew their ATMAE Membership dues each year, $100 for Professional Members, $25 for Student Members.

  • TOTAL Annual Fees for Certified ATMAE Members (excluding retired members):
    • Certified Professional Member: $35 Certification Renewal + $100 ATMAE Membership = $135
    • Certified Student Member: $25 Certification Renewal + $25 ATMAE Membership = $50

  • Transition from Initial (CEG, CMS, CTM, or CTP) to Senior (CSEG, CSMS, CSTM, or CSTP) Certification: No additional fee beyond annual fees


Fee Policies:

  • All fees must be paid to maintain a valid ATMAE Certification.

  • Members will receive reminder notices via email for each year's pending ATMAE Membership and Certification expiration. ATMAE does not keep payment information on record so members are required to process renewal dues every year via the members' online renewal system.

  • Revocation of Certification for Non-Payment: Non-payment of fees will result in revocation of certification. Certification status must be continuous throughout the certification period. Certification is revoked if fees are not paid within 60 days of the annual dues expiration date.

  • Reinstatement of Certification:
    • Upon payment of all fees that are due (this includes lapsed years for membership and certification), the certification will be reinstated if the certified member is also in compliance with all other relevant policies, including continuing education policies.
    • ATMAE reserves the right to treat a request for reinstatement of a lapsed certification as a new application. This is most common when a certification has been lapsed for three years or more and records of the certification are no longer available; in such cases, ATMAE requires the holder of the lapsed certificate to provide documentary evidence of their prior ATMAE Certification, to pay all past due fees, and to comply with continuing education requirements. On an individual basis, the Certification Officer may waive specific policies for good cause.
