What are the Annual Certification Workshops?
Each year we run Certification Workshops around the world. Led by senior faculty members of the Academy over a 2 – 3 day period, these workshops enable loyalty professionals to achieve the distinction of Certified Loyalty Marketing Professional™ (CLMP) all at once.
The workshops are intense and cover all core modules plus some of the elective topics offered in the full Curriculum. The workshop includes interactive exercises, substantial discussion, and participation opportunities for the attendees and concludes with a final examination based upon a case study. The final presentations/exams will be evaluated by the Board of Regents for the Loyalty Academy and the CLMP Certification will be granted to all participants who successfully demonstrate their understanding and real world use of the principles, practices, technologies, and financial elements associated with winning loyalty strategies.
