A Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) is an individual recognized for having successfully passed a rigorous certification exam that tests a high standard of experience and expertise in marketing professional services. This voluntary certification program is completely designed and created for the advancement of A/E/C firm marketing and business development professionals. By earning the CPSM credentials, you have a demonstrated high level of understanding of the essential marketing skills and know-how to distinguish your firm (and yourself) to be among the very best in the A/E/C industry.
It helps to establish credibility and distinction for marketing professionals amongst your peers, colleagues and competitors. As a marketer, business developer, or the employer of one, certification will help you take your organization to the next level.
The 150-question, multiple-choice exam — based on a practice analysis commissioned by SMPS — is offered in two formats: on paper or online. Candidates must achieve a 75 percent score or higher to pass. There are certain professional and educational eligibility requirements associated with the exam.
