CMP Study Group
The study group is a ten-week program, which typically meets weekly on Thursday evenings for 90 minutes to two hours. The study group covers all domains and topics contained in the CMP International Standards (CMP-IS) outlined in the syllabus. In addition, you will take practice exams with answers based on actual test questions from the exam. This series of regular infusions of knowledge will better prepare you throughout the months leading up to the exam and help you stay on track with your studying.
