The book features sections on business rationale; planning; risk management; implementation and audit; and key terminology. Section quizzes help users evaluate their knowledge before taking the CMP-HC exam.
The exam includes 100 items, and is administered electronically at designated testing facilities. It is open to meeting professionals who hold a valid CMP designation; have at least 36 months of experience in health-care meeting management; and have 15 clock hours of professional development in health-care meeting management, completed in the previous five years.
Obtaining the CMP-HC designation is a sign that planners understand key topics in health-care event management, including attendee tracking, data capture, and the reporting of medical meeting spending.
“This manual provides the information and tools to help professionals develop that knowledge.”
– Paul Van Deventer, President and Chief Executive Officer of MPI.
