Beginning in February, planners can earn up to 10 continuing education units (CEs) towards Certified Meeting Professional (CMP and CMP-HS) accreditation and recertification requirements. The program, which runs in a mobile app environment, is the first to focus solely on mobile technology and how it can be used to build and measure success points at a conference or event.
“Mobile apps stormed the industry and are now fixtures at large meetings and events around the world,” said Tahira Endean, CMP, manager, Events for QuickMobile. “Mobile technology is one more thing that meeting and event professionals need to manage, along with understanding how it fits, what it can do and what it needs to be integrated with. All of this will be explained in our course.”
The Convention Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of the program and attendees may receive up to 10 CEU hours in the following Domains of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards:
- Domain F: Stakeholder Management, two hours
- Domain B: Project Management, one hour
- Domain I: Marketing, two hours
- Domain D: Financial Management, one hour
- Domain G: Meeting and Event Design, two hours
