MPI AZ 2020 CMP University




CMP University (CMP U) is the dynamic way to prepare for the CMP Examination. CMP U covers all domains and topics contained in the CMP International Standards within a university extension format. CMP U will be held on select Saturday mornings preceding the CMP examination periods offered in August 2020 and November 2020. This series of regular infusions of knowledge will better prepare you throughout the months leading up to the exam and help you stay on track with your studying.  

Also being sensitive to today's economic challenges, the tuition for the entire semester starts at only $150 for MPI members. Once you register - the Zoom conferencing details will be sent to you.

Even if you do not plan to take the CMP examination yet, CMP U is a sound investment and the perfect way to boost your professional power. The curriculum provides the knowledge and skills for continuing education in our industry (and can earn you necessary hours towards taking the CMP exam at a future date.)

If you would like more information about the CMP Certification, exam dates and deadlines, please visit Cancellations will be accepted up to March 20, 2020. After March 20, 2020 no refunds will be allowed.
