Please Note: It is recommended that managers take this course when they are within one year of eligibility to take the certification exam.

In developing the BMI program, CMI recognized the need for a multi-day workshop to assist members working toward CMAA's Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation. Typically offered twice each year, this intensive, 40-hour course provides review sessions based on the 10 club management competency areas and the learning objectives identified in the Certification Study Guide (available from CMAA).

The Certification Review Course is designed to aid managers in their preparation for the CCM exam but should not take the place of individual study and preparation. To take the CCM exam, members must file a petition with the CMAA National Headquarters. An optional sixth day is provided for fully-qualified students to take the exam.
