Planning on earning or recertifying your CMP? Want a getaway to the Caribbean? You’re in luck—MPI’s CMP Master Class at Sea combines your journey to certification with a two-night voyage to the Bahamas.

Join us for a singular learning voyage aboard the Celebrity Equinox for MPI’s CMP Master Class. Instructed by industry icon and thought leader Joanne Dennison, CMP, MSEd, this open-floor and interactive CMP Master Class covers best practices as outlined in the CMP-International Standards (CMP-IS), and gets you ready for the final exam.

It includes proven study methods, test taking tips, relaxation techniques and stories that make the concepts “sticky.” After you gain your sea legs, you’ll gain:

  • Key concepts behind the CMP-IS and how to apply them on the job and the exam
  • Best practices for preparing for and taking the exam
  • A personal study path based on where you are in the process
  • 10 clock hours toward CMP certification or recertification

The study materials for this session are the referenced recommended reading: 9th Edition Convention Industry Council (CIC) Manual, 6th Edition Professional Meeting Management and the Events Industry Council’s APEX Glossary.
