CMP Prep Course 

The MPI Potomac Chapter CMP Prep Course was amazing, and most likely the reason I passed the exam on my first attempt! The different instructors were very knowledgeable and even though we were reviewing everything provided in the book, they helped make it make sense. Having the instructors provide insight on their test experience and studying tips, in addition to a group of peers all trying to help each other succeed was the perfect environment to prepare me for the exam. All in all, I am extremely grateful I took the course, and do feel it gave me the confidence and leverage to pass and earn my CMP!

CMP Boot Camp 

I can tell you that taking the CMP Bootcamp was a good investment for me because it gave me the tips and tools needed to focus on when I took the CMP exam. The instructors were industry professionals with designations and know what is required to write a successful exam.  I would definitely encourage other event professionals to invest in the CMP Boot Camp to achieve their future goals.
