Industry accreditation at IMEX America
Education at IMEX can help you secure industry accreditation. Many education sessions offer points towards Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) accreditation. Numerous sessions are also CSEP (Certified Special Event Professional) Approved. New for this year, we’re also offering ICCASkills accredited sessions.
All accredited education is highlighted in the IMEX America education program and listed in the description.
On the education listing, on the left-hand bar use the filter for accreditation to see all sessions for CMP, CSEP and ICCA.
IMEX is approved as a Preferred Provider by the Events Industry Council (EIC). The majority of IMEX education sessions qualify for CMP continuing education credit.
These can be referred to as Points, Units or Clock hours as the value of the points you can gain for each session is based on session length and rounded to the closest 15 minutes.
During your time at IMEX America keep a log of the sessions you attend and how many clock hours you want to claim for. After you’ve attended IMEX, make sure you self-certificate your attendance in your EIC portal to claim your clock hours. These clock hours can also be used for recertification.
Find out more about CMP information at EIC on the Events Industry Council website.
A select number of education sessions at IMEX are Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) Approved. First time applicants to the certification can use what they’ve learnt from our education program to prepare for the exam.
You don’t need to report or verify your attendance unlike points-based accreditations.
By attending CSEP Approved IMEX sessions, you can continue your professional education, prepare for your accreditation or contribute to your recertification.
