l) Educational Licenses, Accreditation, and State Sanction.
The AAPM does not claim to be a college or university nor does it claim accreditation from any 501 bodies, state,
or federal government agency or body. The AAPM is not a 501c3 organization and never has claimed to be a tax free
or charitable entity. The AAPM may engage in business with charitable organizations or form alliances with
charities that operate under 501 but the AAPM operates as a responsible, growing, proprietary, growth oriented, and
profit oriented association and company. The AAPM is an independent authority similar to other American
Associations. The AAPM grants certificates, certifications, marks, designations, and charters much like hundreds of
other legal educational and recognition institutes or associations in the United States. The AAPM strictly follows
the criteria of the Ibanez decision in the United States. We encourage all members and certified members to meet
all requirements for education, experience, testing, ethics, and continuing education. The AAPM licenses its marks
and logos to others. The marks are generally licensed to individuals. The AAPM will license the AAPMand other marks
and logos to companies, universities, or other uses upon the consent of its board. The AAPM outsourses to other
companies for training and education that is provided online. The AAPM does not collect money for the courses,
provide the service, teach the class, enter into a contract with the student. THe company providing the education
and training is simply using our site as a distribution point. THe AAPM may receive a referral fee, rebate, revenue
share, or other payments for providing the website that afforded the sale of the service to the customer. In sum,
you accept that we are not responsible for the performance of any education or training contract. We do not hold
any of your private information that you submitted to the training, course, or education provider although
directory infomation may be exchanged. This information is limited to email address, phone number, name, employer,
educational degrees and background.
As e-commerce is a relatively new field, it is impossible for any association to have been in this field for any
significant length of time. With this in mind, new and growing fields of study and practice should be given the
opportunity to grow and flourish without government interference. AAPM claims no government sanction or alliance.
AAPM has formed legal relationships with professors, college organizations, university groups and independent
training associations and facilities. As accreditation is generally not operated by any government body, The AAPM
is self governing and our members and certified members are self governing through our regulations, ethics, and
continuing education, and standards much like lawyers, accountants, or financial planners.
The AAPM is not in the business of accreditation of colleges universities or schools. Call the AACSB if you
desire accreditation or call the Department of Education.
