Disability Service Accommodations
Requests for Disability Service Accommodations:
ACAMS is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with documented disabilities as defined by local, applicable law. Our intent is to ensure that everyone who makes a request for accommodations is advised of the accommodation process as promptly as possible. If you have a disability as defined under local, applicable law, please contact the Accommodation Coordinator for a request form and information.
The first step in the accommodation process is to contact our Disability Services.
Disability Services Accommodation Coordinator
Phone: +1 786 871 3062
Fax: +1 866 494 0040
After you initiate contact, the Accommodation Coordinator will ask you to complete the accommodation request form specifying your impairment and the requested accommodation. In addition to the form, you must provide recent (generally no more than five years old) certification and/or documentation from a qualified medical or educational professional that (a) provides a specific diagnosis; and (b) recommends specific accommodations that might be helpful to the applicable setting and request based on the diagnosis.
When completing the form, add your application number (e.g., CAMS099887766), and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure ACAMS properly receives your accommodation request. The Accommodation Coordinator will contact you with further information.
The Accommodation Coordinator will evaluate your request and supporting documentation and request or obtain any additional input, including supporting documentation as appropriate to determine whether your request can reasonably be granted. If your request is granted, the Accommodation Coordinator will work with you to implement the request. If your request is denied or deemed unreasonable, the Accommodation Coordinator will engage in a dialog with you to explore any alternative reasonable accommodation options, if appropriate.
Once accommodations have been implemented, you should continue to work with Disability Services on any accommodation-related needs. If you experience difficulty in implementing or obtaining approved accommodations, you must notify the Accommodation Coordinator immediately upon identification of concern for assistance in rectifying the situation as appropriate.
Requests are reviewed on an individual and rolling basis. Please note, the time for approval could potentially affect the time frame for testing with approved accommodation.
If you have a complaint, please contact email@example.com. If you believe you have been discriminated against due to a disability you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to address the immediate situation. You will be contacted by the Certification Manager.
