Important Endorsement® Dates:  2018

  • IMH-E® Office Hours
  • EASy Application Submittal Dates
  • Application Review Decisions
  • Exam Dates—categories III and IV only

IMH-E® Office Hours:  WI AIMH will be hosting Infant Mental Health E® Office Hours, which are calls open to anyone with questions related to beginning and completing the IMH Endorsement® application process.  IMH-E® Office Hours are held quarterly and are open to anyone who has questions about Endorsement, the application process or the Endorsement Application System (EASy).  There is no obligation–join us for the whole hour, or drop in for as much of the conversation as your schedule allows.  We respect the confidentiality of all IMH Endorsement® applicants so you will not be asked to identify yourself on the call.

The dates of the calls, as well as the conference line, are listed below in the chart.  There are four calls scheduled and all of them occur on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm and will be hosted by Carrie Finkbiner, who is the WI-AIMH staff member who coordinates Endorsement® in WI.

2018 IMH-E® Application Submittal Dates:  In 2018 the deadline to submit IMH-E® applications, for all categories, will occur on a quarterly basis.  In addition, we are offering the endorsement exam (Level III and Level IV applicants) on four separate occasions throughout the year (spring, summer, fall and winter) to provide more options and flexibility to applicants in planning and preparing as needed.

Application Review Decision:  As a reminder, once an applicant submits their application through the EASy system, it can take up to 8 weeks to complete the application process.  After the first review is complete, the second reviewer is assigned.  During the review process a reviewer may request more information or clarification from the applicant.  WI-AIMH coordinates the communication to ensure that the applicant receives requests in a timely manner such that the review process is completed without unnecessary delays.

Exam Dates—categories III and IV only:  For Category III and IV applicants, once the application is approved, the applicant is eligible to sit for the exam.  The exam takes place in Madison, WI.  The applicant can choose the exam date that works best for him/her, but should take the exam within 12 months of the application review process being completed.  If the applicant does not take the exam within 12 months of the date when the application approved to sit for the exam, the applicant will need to update their EASy application, which includes securing new/updated reference ratings.  WI-AIMH will communicate with applicants to finalize the exam arrangements.
