Contact Hour Status Report 

  This section of our web site is provided as a service to our members.  You will be able to find all past articles that can earn you contact hours to apply towards your certification or registration with ALM.  If you have missed an article and quiz, please feel free to use the articles below to get caught up. Online quizzes are available only to ALM members.  If you have already submitted a specific quiz for credit, there is no need to re-submit the same quiz as you will not receive additional credit for the second submission.

Current Certification Status
