IHMM Today

Welcome to the offices of Dr. Recert

Thank you for waiting, the doctor will see you now.

Hello again, how have you been?  We’ve just gotten some new equipment, the MyIHMM Self Service Administration [SSA], to help keep your certification healthy and up to date, so let me help you walk through it and make some recommendations to help make it easier to use.

Just make yourself comfortable and we can begin.

How to access your Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page:

Go to www.ihmm.org

  • Click on the (orange button with the circle and head inside it) MyIHMM Login button.
  • Enter your User Name [User Name] & Password [Password] in the appropriate blocks.
  • This will take you to the MyIHMM Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page.

You should see a number of “panes” (small boxes) of information here. They will always appear in the same positions.

  • Upper LEFT will be your Alerts and Notices pane-Any quick messaging from IHMM will be posted here, as are some quick links to useful information.
  • Upper RIGHT will be your Welcome pane-Your ID #, date you became certified, credential(s) certified in, certification cycle(s), and your Annual Fee due date will be in this pane.
  • Below and LEFT you’ll see your APPLICATIONS in process pane-Any application forms not yet complete will be listed here.
  • Below and RIGHT will show your RECERTIFICATIONS in Process pane-A quick link to and status of your application will be listed in this pane
  • Beneath all of that, to the LEFT, you will see your APPLICATION Summary Review pane

And that’s the basic layout of your Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page.

How to find and open a new Recertification application form:

Use the same steps as “How to access SSA” above, then:

  • On the Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page Window
  • To the left you will see a black box with a stack of three horizontal lines in it [We refer to this as the “3-bar” or “Hamburger” Menu Button].
  • Click on that box to open your menu
  • To open a new recertification application, click on “RECERTIFICATION” from the menu options
  • This will take you to the list of recertification applications (a.k.a. the “SUBMISSION HISTORY” screen)

NOTE:   In the list of recertification applications (a.k.a. the “SUBMISSION HISTORY”) screen. All Certifications are listed in alphabetical order, please scroll down and read carefully before clicking on any button to open the correct form.

  • On the right hand side, you should see a horizontal bar type button that says “CREATE NEW RECERTIFICATION APPLICATION” for any credential you are eligible to recertify for.
  • Click on this button to open a new blank recertification application form for the credential you are recertifying for.

NOTE:   You may only open ONE recertification application form at a time, so once you have opened the button will read “NOT ELIGIBLE TO CREATE NEW RECERTIFICATION APPLICATION” for that credential.

Simply follow the next set of instructions to access your open application on your next visit.
How to open an existing application:

  • Use the same steps as “How to access SSA” above, then:

On the Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page Window.

  • Look in your “Recertifications in Process” pane [On the RIGHT, second pane down].
  • In the “Certification” column of your “Recertifications in Process” pane you’ll see the title(s) of any credential you have an application in process for.
  • Click on the name of the credential [usually in BOLD BLUE] which is a link to the form in process.

Then just click on the section buttons [Red with title of the section on them], to enter the part of the form you want to edit or add items to. 
Remember to save anything you enter!
How to update your contact information:

  • Use the same steps as “How to access SSA” above, then:

On the SELF SERVICE APPLIANCE [SSA] Welcome Page Window

  • To the left you will see a black box with a stack of three horizontal lines in it [We refer to this as the “3-bar” or “Hamburger” Menu Button].
  • Click on that box to open your menu.
  • To update your contact information, choose “Update Contact Information”, then click on the “EDIT” button for the area you wish to update.

Please remember to make yourself an appointment to log-in AT LEAST twice a year (and quarterly is better) to your MyIHMM Self Service Administration [SSA] Welcome Page and make sure your contact information is current and up to date.

IHMM’s primary notification method is electronic (via e-mail and alerts on your SSA page or the IHMM web page), so forgetting to access the site or update your information is not an excuse for failing to meet a deadline for fees or form submission.
A few quick clicks to log-in can save a lot of headaches later. 

Armed with that information you should have little to no difficulty keeping your certification healthy and your process worry free. Keep entering those activities as you get them!

Please contact us at recertinfo@ihmm.org should you have any questions.
