QuickMobile is offering the meeting industry’s first certificate program that will focus solely on mobile technology and how it can be used to build and measure success points at a conference or an event.

The program, which was announced on Friday, is intended for meeting professionals who are adding mobile to their portfolios and want to better understand the terminology and user experiences, as well as the best design, delivery and deployment practices. Professionals will be able to earn up to 10 continuing education units toward Certified Meeting Professional (CMP and CMP-HS) accreditation and recertification requirements.

An independent, mobile app-based format will be used, and participants will complete a series of short e-learning sessions and quiz-style assessments. The format is designed to provide an easy, digestible way for meeting professionals to gain knowledge about mobile technology and the new ways that attendees expect to engage, share and receive information.
