  • Create a CMP Action Plan
  • Discover the steps in the CMP Process
  • Uncover exam preparation resources
  • Learn how to earn 25-clock hours of continuing education

Who Should Attend? If you…
  • Would like to earn your CMP within the next 5 years
  • Need to accumulate the 25-hours of continuing education
  • Are ready to fill out your CMP application
  • Want a proven, efficient,systematic way to prepare for the CMP exam

I was really looking for something that would ease my worries and help kick start my motivation to take the exam. Ellen did just that with this short program. And she has been excellent in communicating with me outside of the recordings - just like she said she would be! Now time to focus on getting my materials and signing up for the study group!

I have reviewed several introductory lessons of what is needed to apply and take the CMP exam (even EIC's own webinars) and by far this introduction exceeds them. The information is laid out in an easy manner to follow and very concise. Thank you.
