Becoming a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) is a great way to position yourself as a leader in the A/E/C industry. Having this designation on your resume gives you a differentiator over someone else with the same experience, but without the certification.

Offered by SMPS, the recognized leader in education and information for marketing professional services, the CPSM credential is a voluntary certification designed to elevate professional standards in marketing and influence the future of this vital field. Furthermore, the CPSM designation serves as a mark of distinction for professional services marketers and business developers, raising their standing with their employers, peers, and the public.

The achievement offers you a wide range of important benefits:

  • Increased knowledge in strategic market planning, market research, plan implementation, business development, and promotion
  • Demonstrates your dedication to the professional services marketing profession
  • Industry recognition of professional competence
  • Enhanced credibility with employers, clients, and peers
  • Improved ability to compete in the job market
  • Potential for increased compensation and benefits
  • Career advancement
  • Public recognition in the roster of CPSMs on the SMPS web site
  • Invitation to CPSM-only educational and networking programs
  • Access to the CPSM communities on MySMPS and LinkedIn
