Meeting and Event Management
To the guests, it’s a spectacular event; to you, it’s a day’s work as an event planner. Be it a wedding, an important meeting, or a banquet dinner – you’re cool as a cucumber, reassuring your client that everything’s running smoothly. Behind the scenes, you’re managing the staff, directing the setup and keeping track of all of the pieces that make for a great event.
There’s nothing better than bringing people together, and our Certificate in Meeting & Event Management helps you do it at your best. Our students learn how to turn clients’ visions and dreams into realities, while offering their own insight and wisdom on how to pull it off. And, they learn how to make it all look effortless.
From examining details with a fine-toothed comb to evaluating the bigger picture, our certification prepares students to handle events large and small. Students are taught by experts in the industry about how to choose appropriate meeting sites, plan pre-event publicity, coordinate audio-visual aids and banquet service, and negotiate contracts. The certificate can be completed within one year, or students have up to two years to finish their course work.
Whether you’re a seasoned event planner seeking accreditation or a novice starting a new career, our online certification gives you the flexibility to study anytime, anywhere. And with only five courses required for your certificate, you’ll be planning your next event before you can say, “I’ve got it all under control.”
Our certificate helps prepare you for the CMP exam. Each course is the equivalent of 36 hours of industry related continuing education. View our courses and the corresponding areas of knowledge.
