If you are a Certified Meeting Professional working in the healthcare industry, then you should consider applying for the CMP-HC, the new healthcare certification, and a subspecialty of the CMP. 

First announced last fall, the CMP-HC will recognize the specialized knowledge required by professionals who manage healthcare meetings and provide additional professional benefits, including career enhancement and professional recognition. The certification is a subspecialty of the CMP; so only those who have already earned the CMP designation will be eligible to pursue the CMP-HC.

Eligibility
To be eligible for the certification, meeting professionals must hold a valid and current CMP, have three years (36 months) of experience in healthcare meeting management, and have 15 clock hours of professional development specifically related to healthcare meeting management. 

Application 
Eligible candidates may apply to participate in the beta test here, on the CIC website.

Beta Test
CIC plans to hold the first examination in May 2014; however, eligible professionals are encouraged to sit for the beta exam, which will be held October 7-21, 2013 at testing sites throughout the country and around the world. The beta test is limited to 150 individuals and those successfully completing the examination will become the first CMPs to be granted the CMP-HC designation. 

Please visit the CMP-HC section of the CIC website for more information, including the CMP-HC Standards, testing information, related fees, and a list of recommended literature. Apply now!
