IWF 2012 is the site for the Cabinet Makers Association’s first expanded live sessions for its new CMA Professional Certification Program. Two types of sessions make up the programming. Curriculum sessions contain required knowledge to pass testing. CEU sessions are electives. Those enrolled for certification are required to earn 4.0 CEUs per year and to pass applicable testing.
You do not need to be a CMA member or enrolled in our certification program to attend any of these sessions. However, if you want any credits from these sessions to apply toward your future CMA professional certification, you must enroll and pay CMA program fees within one year from the date of the session. You are not required to be a CMA member to become CMA certified, however, the program offers substantial discounts to CMA members on session and program fees.
More details about the CMA certification program are available at http://cabinetmakers.org/certification.html or stop by the CMA booth #1336 with your questions and comments.
