Earning the Events Industry Council’s Certified Meeting Planner designation showcases your industry expertise to employers and clients and enhances prestige among peers. However, with the last standardized exam in the rearview mirror for many, navigating the CMP-International Standards (CMP-IS) and related study material can be intimidating.
This new course from the long-time leaders in professional development and online education, is designed to provide you with the strategies, resources, and knowledge to be successful when sitting for the CMP exam.
With self-paced content to complete each week, weekly live online class meetings, a peer-based community forum and access to on-demand videos to support additional knowledge retention, ELI’s CMP Exam Prep Course provides comprehensive support for your entire CMP certification journey.
Participating in study groups help learners work together toward common goals of learning, gain new perspectives, learn new study skills, and fill in learning gaps. However, taking and/or completing this course does not guarantee passing the CMP Exam.
The course is taught by Carolyn Browning, CMP, CMM, HMCC, who has helped hundreds identify and address knowledge and skills gaps, develop a personal learning plan, and prepare for the exam.
Students should be actively pursuing the CMP designation with the goal of taking the exam within 2-3 months of completing this course.
To be successful in this course, students will need to purchase (or borrow) the necessary books for weekly reading assignments. These books (EIC Manual, 9th edition $99.95 USD, and Professional Meeting Management, 6th edition $110 USD) can be purchased through the EIC website. The APEX Industry Glossary is supplemental and can be purchased for $35 from the EIC website.
Event Leadership Institute has been approved by the Events Industry Council (EIC) as a Preferred Provider of continuing education on all professional development certificate courses, which qualifies for CMP continuing education credit. Determination of continuing education credit eligibility or Preferred Provider status does not imply EIC’s endorsement or assessment of education quality.
