Certification Programs

In many professions, a successful career is marked by an appropriate degree of professional development, verified by a credible certification program and recognized by both the public and one's peers. The Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation has been the hallmark of professionalism in club management since 1965 and is the cornerstone of CMAA's certification program. It is a valuable and widely-respected mark of a manager's commitment to professional development and the club industry.

As with its education programs, CMAA’s certification program is a dynamic, continuing process. It includes two levels of further recognition: CMAA's prestigious Honor Society and the Master Club Manager (MCM) designation.

The entire certification program is under the jurisdiction of the Certification Committee with oversight provided by CMAA’s Board of Directors. It is the Certification Committee’s responsibility to consider suggestions from the members and to ensure that the certification program adapts to the ever-changing club management environment.
