CPSM Bootcamp

The Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) designation is the highest technical achievement in our industry. Our free, nationally-recognized members-only bootcamp program will get you ready to tackle the test in no time - helping you join a distinguished group of professionals committed to professional excellence, career advancement, and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.​

How it works

A CPSM is recognized as an individual who has met a rigorous standard of experience and expertise in marketing professional services, and has demonstrated their knowledge of the practice and related disciplines through a thorough examination of marketing competency. Candidates will be tested on their knowledge of the following six domains of practice:

  • Marketing research
  • Marketing planning
  • Client and business development
  • Proposals
  • Promotional activity
  • Management


Kicked-off in January of each year, this aggressive 10-week program covers everything you need to know to take the CPSM exam, from logistics to study tips to deep dives on exam materials. Our Career Advancement committee balances a series of webinars, in-person classes and group review sessions designed to address all schedules and learning styles.

Classes typically run from February through May of each program year, and include between 10-20 participants. Candidates typically sit for the exam in June to be recognized at our annual Summer Celebration.
