CDME Recertification

Stay on top of the latest developments in destination marketing and management by renewing your industry certification.

CDME certification is valid for four years. A CDME must earn and report a total of four (4) continuing education credits, by attending Destinations International professional development activities. These activities include the Annual Convention, Summits and Forums, each of which count as one (1) credit. You may also elect to take an additional CDME elective or re-take a core course, each of which counts as one (1) credit.

CDMEs who do not comply with the recertification requirements will lose their designation.

Reporting Your Continuing Education

CDMEs must report their continuing education credits to Destinations International by using the CDME recertification form.
