Remote Program for the MPI Toronto CMP Study Group

The MPI Toronto CMP Study Group has been helping people gain the knowledge over the past several years needed to write their CMP designation. One question that often gets asked is how people can participate in the group when they live and work outside of the GTA. After having looked at several online educational programs, as well as best practices from other CMP Study Groups MPI Toronto is introducing a remote program for the MPI Toronto CMP Study Group.

How will it work?

Participants who sign up will be officially recognized as part of this Study Group, and will receive all correspondence, including presentations, study tips, mock exams, and the opportunity to participate in the “sub groups” that often come with being part of the larger group. Each person would then be assigned a study partner from the group, the two partners must work together on a different side of the industry: planner with a supplier. This will ensure the participant gains insight into parts of the exam and program they are not familiar with.

Following each study session, partners will connect via Skype for at least an hour to review the material. The duration of these Skype sessions would be mutually agreed upon, and we strongly suggest that the Skype session takes place within a week of the study session in order for the information to stay fresh and to avoid falling behind the rest of the group.

Who qualies for the remote program?

Anyone who lives and/or works at least three (3) hours from the GTA would qualify.

Remote Program Fees:
MPI Members: $150.00+HST
Non-Members: $350.00+HST 

A $50.00 rebate would be issued for participation in all of the one-on-one sessions. An additional $50 rebate would be issued for participation as a study group partner.

Additional Fees to attend a CMP In-Person Study Group Session:
MPI Members: $50.00+HST
Non-Members: $75.00+HST

Registration for the Remote Program is available at the link above.
