CMDSM/CMDSS Study Program Informational Webinar - May 2nd


Now is your chance to take the first step in earning your professional certification and the industry’s most recognized professional credentials!

The people I knew in the mail industry with this highly regarded distinction are impressive, not only in mail knowledge, but in quality of character and caliber of personality.  I wanted to be one of them.

We are holding an informational Webinar May 2nd 2:00 EST for anyone considering sitting for the CMDSM or CMDSS Certification at the Fall MAILCOM in Las Vegas, September 24-26.  

This webinar will review the certification programs, the necessary points to sit for the exam, the content of the exam and what the logistics and details related to the exam.   We also spend time discussing the Study Session program and what the expectations and responsibilities are for participants.

Who should attend:

  •  Individuals who have achieved MDC and have an interest in the highest level of certification

  • Individuals who have a desire to improve their knowledge and prestige in the mailing and facilities management industry

  • Managers and Supervisors wanting to increase their career opportunities

  • Individuals who have achieved USPS EMCM Certification with a desire for additional certification

I highly recommend participation in the CMDSM study sessions. The sessions provided a wealth of information that will be covered on the exam. The eight weeks zoom by and the comradery gained from interacting with fellow business professionals is invaluable.
I can honestly say that without the study sessions I would not have passed the exam.
