Being a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) means you have successfully positioned yourself amongst an elite group of professional services marketers who have invested in themselves and who understand and embrace the need for continuous improvement through education, which enhances their opportunity for professional success.

    What are the benefits of obtaining the CPSM Certification?
    Certification is a time-tested means of measuring a professional’s credentials. Through the SMPS certification program, an employer can be assured that their marketing professionals have what it takes to generate profitable business through demonstrated proficiency in the domains of practice: marketing research, marketing plan, client and business development, SOQs/proposals, promotional activity, and information, resource, and organizational management.

    CPSMs know how to find and deliver profitable business. Consequently, employers who hire CPSMs or support the certification of their employees can be confident that they employ the best-qualified professionals to build business for their firms.

    What are the Eligibility Requirements?
    To sit for the CPSM examination, a candidate must meet the following requirements:

    • Possess a bachelor’s degree or an advanced degree plus four years of experience in marketing or business development for firms providing professional services, or
    • Possess an associate’s degree plus six years work experience in marketing or business development for firms providing professional services, or
