Whether you 1) are new to event planning, 2) are planning events even if that’s not your job title, or 3) need a refresher, MPI’s Basics Boot Camp: Meeting Fundamentals Certificate Program teaches you the must-perform tactics that ensure successful event execution, delivery, and measurement. This Events Industry Council-certified, this six-hour course offers a deep dive into the building blocks of successful event planning. You’ll learn how to define objectives and identify stakeholders through meeting design development. As well, you’ll learn how to create RFPs, contracts, and menus, and identify staging, audiovisual needs, and more.
Led by an expert facilitator from MPI, this certificate class touches on every element of the meeting planning process, offering you the opportunity to employ best practices for your business, make changes to your processes and ensure that your operations conform with industry-leading standards.
MPI’s Emergency Preparedness for Events Certificate Program gives you the tools you need to effectively plan for— and respond to—crisis situations and deliver on your responsibility to both your attendees and your organization. You’ll learn how you can ensure the safety and security of all attendees, limit damage and restore services in the event of an emergency.
Through this six-hour certificate course, developed in partnership with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi, you’ll build and maintain an understanding of risk management and the emergency planning process. You’ll learn processes for risk assessment and emergency preparedness, adapted from the best-in-class experts in marathons and World Cups, and take a deep dive into incident management strategies as needed for the prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery from all-hazard emergency incidents. You’ll also learn techniques to prevent and respond to everything from ordinary incidents such as fights or drunkenness to extraordinary crimes, violence, terrorist attacks, and natural disasters.
With MPI’s Meeting & Event Strategist Certificate Program, you’ll learn how to deliver meetings and events that help your organization achieve business goals and drive efficiencies in the workplace. You’ll develop future-ready skills and expertise required to not only thrive in your organization but actually have a seat at the table.
Through this program, you’ll understand the business value of events and ensure that they successfully achieve objectives, justify costs, and provide authentic and deliberate experiences to attendees. Upon completion, you’ll no longer be a meeting planner; you’ll be an Event Strategist that drives growth and value for your organization, and you’ll be able to communicate that value to leadership.
