We chose to partner with the CIM as they are the most respected, recognised and rigorous body in our industry.

After two years of working together to design and create our courses we are very proud to be the only event management training academy that are accredited.

The CIM is a professional association with 40,000 members worldwide. It offers professional development to marketing practitioners and other professionals who are dedicated to improving their business knowledge.

The CIM consistently monitor the content and calibre of our courses to ensure we adhere to the industry’s best practises and maintain high standards of education.

The quality of a qualification from the CIM has real value to employers. This can make all the difference when looking for work or changing career.

Just compare the number of other training courses that are all accredited by the same organisations. We believe (after a lot of hard work!) that we are in a class of our own. There has to be a reason for that…

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The Event Academy are also certified by the CPD.

CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development.

Accompanied by such growth is the acceptance that academic qualifications must offer more vocational and skills-based or ‘practical’ learning. A structured, practical and methodical approach to learning helps employers across industries to keep key staff and develop the skills & knowledge in their organisations to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.

Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.
