About MEF Training & Certification
MEF employs a rigorous process to approve training providers and instructors. Your training experience will be top-notch, delivered by experienced professionals who know the content areas in a manner that will prepare you for the MEF certification exams. Each cert prep course (choose one only; due to currriculum availability you will not be able to switch your prep course once MEF18 starts) lasts the entire day. Each cert prep course begins on Thursday, November 1, at 8:30 am and will last until 4:30 pm the same day. Your training includes lunch and all snacks for that day at the MEF18 event. We know that sometimes it’s often easier to get corporate permission to attend a training event than simply “a convention in Los Angeles”—so why not do both! Return from Los Angeles having enjoyed the complete MEF experience—learning, networking, being a part of meetings and seeing what’s going on—plus the added benefit of receiving the preparation to take one of the three MEF ProCert exams in the next few weeks--when you are ready. What a tremendous opportunity!
