Why You Should Become Certified

We're almost halfway through the calendar year, and that goal you set to become a CCMP seems so long ago. Don't fret, we're here to motivate and remind you of all the great things the CCMP has to offer:

  • Credibility: Looking to establish yourself as a change professional? An industry certification like the CCMP is a 'stamp of approval' from ACMP®, an objective professional organization. This is proof that you have the knowledge and the skills to succeed.
  • Increase Your Marketability: A voluntary certification is evidence of your personal drive and motivation, as well as your commitment to the field of change management. Avoid a career rut and blaze a trail by challenging yourself in new ways.
  • Gain New Skills & Knowledge: When preparing for the CCMP exam, you will need to study the Standard for Change Management© and the ACMP Code of Ethics. Once you pass the exam and become a CCMP, you are required to maintain your certification by earning 60 PDUs, every 3 years, through continuing your change management education, giving back to the profession, and/or work experience.

If your goal is to stand out and grow in your profession, pursuing your CCMP is the right path for you. Have questions or need a helping hand? Alissa is here for all of you and she provides fantastic, informative webinars for CCMP candidates every month. What are you waiting for? Start TODAY.
