Enhance your performance, expand your knowledge, and build a strong community of peers through SMPS Education.

From workshops to webinars, SPMS gives you every opportunity to learn while furthering your career marketing professional services. SMPS also supports the Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) designation with many ways to earn and learn with continuing eduction credits.

One continuing education unit (CEU) is awarded for each contact hour of instruction. A contact hour is defined as one hour of interaction between a learner and an instructor. For purposes of calculating CEUs, breaks, meals, and social/networking time cannot be included in the contact time.

A function with less than one hour of contact time is not eligible for CEUs. For functions with more than one hour of contact time, the minimum increment of contact time eligible for CEUs is 15 minutes, which cannot be rounded up to the next greatest interval. A presentation during a meal function can be counted for the length of the presentation only. Meeting time devoted to business and committee activities cannot be counted.
