If you’ve expressed interest in pursuing a CMP but have not started studying, mark your calendars! MPI THCC will be offering a new virtual CMP study group led by Carol Benavidez, CMP, CMM, HMCC, who has previously taught this course to numerous MPI chapters, including several of our own boot camps.

The course will begin on Tuesday, January 12, 2021, running for eight consecutive weeks as follows: 
  • Tuesday, January 12, 2021 -- 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. CT
  • Tuesday, January 19, 2021 -- 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. CT

  • Tuesday, March 2, 2021 - 6:30 p.m. -- 8:30 p.m. CST
Each two-hour session will cover a specific area of the CMP exam, which you will then be able to submit for continuing education credit, and include a variety of multimedia-rich content, online activities and quizzes recorded for on-demand viewing at a later time.

Registration will be open to MPI THCC members ($50 fee) the week of December 7, 2020 and to the general public on December 14, 2020 ($100 fee). Don’t miss your chance to grab a spot -- the group will be limited to only 25 participants -- and contact with questions or concerns.
