Here’s why CMP graduate Priya Bates recommends CMP:

If you are a communicator 5-7 years in your field. Get your credentials. It is globally recognized and you have this sense of personal accomplishment. We are in a field where non-communicators feels they can do what we do just as well. That they don’t need to hire a professional to be successful. A non-communicator could not pass this exam. In fact, I’m thinking some communicators will struggle. This program will establish what it means to be a professional communicator. If you are more senior or an ABC, it give you a chance to transition to the new certification process and be accountable for staying up to date with communication practice.
