We also grew our membership and expanded to more than 20 chapters world-wide! Below are our 2017 highlights and what we’re looking forward to in 2018.

ACMP added courses to the QEP Registry in 2017…

The Qualified Education Provider Registry is the one stop shop to search for the best courses in change management. All QEP courses are aligned to The Standard for Change Management, incorporate adult education best practices and fulfill the 21-hour training requirement to become CCMP certified. CCMP graduates can also earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) by attending these courses.

…and will add even more in 2018!
In addition to year-round course offerings, our QEPs lead workshops at our annual and regional conferences. For a full listing of Change Management 2018 workshops, click here. Also, if you have recently taken a course that is not on this list, please let us know so we can work on adding it to the registry.
ACMP hosted 15 webinars in 2017…

This year, as part of our commitment to providing opportunities for ongoing learning, we hosted 15 webinars to reflect a range of content identified by our members. Recordings of all webinars are available on the ACMP Resource Library for members. For CCMP graduates, each webinar counts for 1 PDU in the “Education” category.

…and will continue providing monthly webinars in 2018!
