The Professional Convention Management Association has debuted a new mobile app to accompany its recently updated CMP Online Prep Course. The mobile study aid, which PCMA executives believe marks an industry first for CMP preparation, can be downloaded for either Android or Apple iOS devices. It is powered by SpotMe, an event mobile-technology provider.
Among the features offered by the app are 500 quiz questions, organized by domain or mixed up as a scramble; resources that include chapter summaries from Professional Meeting Management, a recommended text for the CMP exam; and in-app messaging capabilities and a message board, to connect with other people preparing to take the test.
The PCMA CMP Online Prep Course has been rewritten recently and updated to correspond with the latest study materials, which include the sixth edition of Professional Meeting Management, the ninth edition of the CIC Manual and the APEX meetings-industry glossary. The course includes new outline handouts with additional content, and new scenario-based quizzes and questions that provide a more advanced way for students to analyze complex meetings situations.
The updated course costs $399 for members and $499 for nonmembers; both prices include access to the course and the app for one year. Register for the course here.
