MPI (Meeting Professionals International) has stated that the deadline for all proposals to support the delivery of the programme is 30 June.
The CMP programme, which was launched by the Convention Industry Council, recognises industry professionals who pursue continuing education and increase their industry involvement.
The requirements for certification are based on professional experience as well as a minimum of 25 continuing hours of education and a written examination.
Liz Rice, VP of certification and director at Metro Broadcast, said: "The UK events industry has for some time lacked a credible programme of professional education for experienced practitioners.
"Our launch of a series of CMP education bootcamps starting in September 2014 will provide an opportunity for event specialists to gain professional recognition alongside their industry peers."
MPI has stated that more details on the CMP and CMP bootcamps will be provided at this year’s Meetings Show, which takes place at Olympia London on 8-10 July.
Speaking to C&IT at EMEC 2014 in February, MPI UK & Ireland chapter president Miguel Neves said that certification for event planners is more important than ever and that promoting the CMP is a key focus for MPI UK & Ireland in 2014.
