CCMP News - Invest in Yourself

Invest in Yourself

It’s hard to believe that another year will soon be ending. As we spend these last couple months in 2018, we naturally reflect upon what we have accomplished and shift our focus to the goals we have for the next year. One way to help you achieve those goals is to invest in yourself.

The CCMP certification is one way to do that. What could the CCMP certification say about you?

  • You’re Building Your Brand: Change management is not only what you do, it’s who you are and what you are passionate about.
  • You Recognize Value: You not only value yourself and your expertise, but you are willing to commit the time, experience, and money to develop that expertise.
  • You have Established Capability: You have not only studied change management, but you have the knowledge and experience to back it up.
  • You have a Continuing Commitment: You are dedicated and invested in continuing your education and knowledge in change management by maintaining your certification and earning PDUs.

The CCMP 2018 exam window is open until December 31. So there is no time like the present to start (or finish) your application and invest in yourself!

Have questions? Alissa will be happy to help you get started.

Hey, I want to become a CCMP – Where Do I Start?

The CCMP certification confirms the education, experience and knowledge of a seasoned practitioner. A person with a CCMP has proven that they not only know how to perform change management work, they've studied it, been trained in it, and have actual experience doing the work.

If you have a cohort of Changers, then Alissa will be willing to set up a private call for you and answer all your questions and help you learn more about becoming a CCMP.
