Sitting for the CMP (Certified Meeting Professional)? Thinking about the professional and personal growth associated with earning your CMP and ready to take the trip?

Join us for a singular learning voyage aboard the Celebrity Equinox and embark from sunny Fort Lauderdale on a two-night Bahamas cruise. In addition to an unforgettable journey to the Caribbean, you will attend MPI’s CMP Master Class with industry icon and thought leader, Joanne Dennison, whose sell-out education experiences enable learners to exceed their professional goals.

Plus … a cruise … to the Caribbean …

Our open-floor, interactive CMP Master Class covers industry best practices as outlined in the CMP-International Standards (CMP-IS). It helps learners prepare for the exam AND apply the skills therein on the job.

It includes proven study methods, test taking tips, relaxation techniques and stories that make the concepts “sticky.” Laughter included at no additional cost.

After you gain your sea legs, you’ll gain the following.

  • 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

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.
