IWF 2012 was the site for the first expanded live sessions for the new CMA Professional Certification Program and we will be offering them again at IWF 2014. There were two types of CMA sessions that make up certification programming. Curriculum sessions contain required knowledge to pass CMA testing. CEU sessions are elective sessions. A person enrolled in our certification program is required to earn 4.0 CEUs per year and to pass applicable testing.
You do not need to be a CMA member or enrolled in our certification program to attend any of these sessions. All are welcome to attend. However, if you wish to have any credits available from these sessions to apply toward your future CMA professional certification, you must enroll and pay CMA program fees within one year from the date of the session. You are not required to be a CMA member to become CMA certified, however, we do offer substantial discounts to CMA members on session and program fees.
