CGMP Course & Exam Registration

Individuals who have earned their CGMP have obtained the highest designation available that is specifically for government meeting professionals. The CGMP is recognized within the hospitality industry; many government contracts require planners working on the contract to have their CGMP certification. In addition to demonstrating your commitment to enhancing your government expertise and to improving the quality of your meetings, earning your CGMP has numerous benefits for your career and for your employer.

In order to take the class, you must be a current member of SGMP and be able to document at least one-year of experience in the meetings/hospitality industry.

The registration fee is $649 and includes all training sessions, the CGMP manual and the exam. To sit for the exam, you must attend all three days of the in-person course. Find out other dates the course will be offered.
