Fresh from delivering two sell-out Certified Meeting Professional Boot Camps in Tokyo, Meeting Professionals International (MPI) UK&I will be running Boot Camp Live at International Confex at Olympia London 2-3 March.
The one-and-a-half-day intensive Boot Camp is the first of its kind to be delivered at a live event and builds on the success of the MPI UK and Ireland training programme that has now been delivered in Barcelona, London and in Tokyo.
Jackie Mulligan VP Education for MPI UK and Ireland says: “Our training designers have intensified the two-day Boot Camp so that the 10 knowledge domains critical for achieving Certified Meeting Professional status are delivered in a shorter time and during a live show. This means participants can combine their professional development with business and their learning with live behind-the-scenes interaction”.
One of the first attendees at MPI UK and Ireland’s CMP Boot Camp, Katherine Bell, operations manager at CWT Meetings and Events, recently passed her CMP exam and believes the Boot Camp helped her to succeed: “Attending the CMP Boot Camp was invaluable preparation for the CMP exam. The course gives you a great overview of the different domains and helps you to understand the amount of information you need to learn in order to pass, plus it gives you confidence that it is achievable”.
Bell adds: “Overall, the qualification gives you a level of credibility in the industry and exposes you to all areas of event management. I’d recommend the CMP to anyone who likes a challenge and is looking to expand their knowledge in events. It is the only global certification available so it is worthwhile having on your CV.”
Registration is still open to book for CMP Boot Camp Live at International Confex on 2-3 March now www.mpiuki.org/events
There are currently 10,000 CMPs in 55 countries. The certification is awarded on passing the CMP exam,
