The CMP study group is open to anyone planning to take the exam. Our Chapter now offers two types of study options:

CMP Study Group
The study group is a ten-week program, which typically meets weekly on Tuesday evenings for 90 minutes. 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.

Registration fees for ten-week study group are $75 for MPI Oregon members and $125 for non-members.  Click here to register!

The above registration fee entitles you to full participation in all 10 classes, all practice quizzes and class materials, and access to a network of CMPs who donate their time serving as speakers to help you prepare for the CMP exam.
