Need Education Clock Hours?
MPI provides clock hours for education sessions and some learning activities as an additional membership benefit. If you are applying or re-certifying for the CMP program, please know that the clock hour credit calculation is regulated by the Convention Industry Council (CIC). For more information on how to calculate your hours, please visit their site.
There are two ways to report earned clock hours. At live events, you will need to have your badge scanned at the door of each session in order to receive credit and have it automatically applied to your Member Transcript. (Please allow 2-3 weeks processing) For webinars, you will need to manually add these credits to your Member Transcript.
