The International Special Events Society has revised the process and fees for the Certified Special Events Professional designation. A new CSEP website has been developed to explain the changes and includes an online application. According to the organization, the changes came through candidate feedback and an ongoing effort to simplify the exam processes and procedures. The revised application will focus on work experience and has eliminated a complicated points system. In addition, candidates no longer need to purchase the instruction manual and application, and will not need to submit letters of recommendation.
