Looking for the only course officially endorsed by the governing body of the CMP (the Convention Industry Council)? Look no further.

How it works

Your first step after registering is to take the self-assessment inventory which measures what you already know against each module of the prep course. Instant feedback will give you a profile of each module, detailing your strengths and areas for improvement.

The course is not designed to simulate the exam, rather to prepare you for it.

What it includes

  • One year of unlimited access
  • Self-assessment evaluation
  • 23 study modules tailored to follow the CMP International Standards. Each module includes reading assignments, a pre-test, a post-test to track progress, and a report detailing your strengths and suggested study areas
  • Two multi-module post-tests designed to track your progress
  • Three full length CMP Practice Exams

Also needed:
CMP Body of Knowledge Study Texts
