We Care About Your Education

It’s easy to become jaded during these uncertain times. There are many unknown factors that are affecting our daily lives, and we have no control over them. However, we do have control over one thing, our education. Now is the time to learn that skill that you’ve always wanted to know, or improve on an old one.

MPI recognizes this and is offering free and discounted courses to help you get ready for the CMP test and to continue your education after you have passed it. Currently, CMP testing has been suspended, but we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to prep for the test and become a part of the CMP ohana.

Why become a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP)?

For more than 30 years, Events Industry Council has defined new levels of professionalism through its Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program. Events Industry Council certifies individuals through an internationally recognized certification program that evaluates the competency of meeting professionals. The CMP designation represents the standard of excellence in the events industry.

The CMP certification program is a two-part process in which you must complete the CMP application to demonstrate your eligibility, and then successfully pass a written examination covering the functions performed in meeting management.

The CMP exam is offered at secure testing centers four times a year during the months of January, May, August and November.  Prometric, Events Industry Council's testing agency, offers more than 450 testing centers around the world.
