Communication Management Professionals (CMPs): Continuing Professional Development

The Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) determined that CMPs can earn 10 continuing professional development (CPD) points per eight hours attendance at recognized training or a course of study related to communication, with a maximum of 20 points per event or course. Using this formula, a completed Academy online course earns five CPD credits or five points toward annual maintenance requirements. A maximum of 20 points per year from Academy courses are allowed toward CMP maintenance.

A CPD is a traditional measurement used in continuing professional development to award credit for participation in a broad range of activities, including workshops, seminars, etc.
