New RecertTrack Website Makes Certification Tracking Easier for Meeting Planners

Online certification tracking company RecertTrack has re-designed and re-launched its website with a new, industry-specific portal for association and meeting professionals, it announced yesterday.

Called the Association and Meeting Professionals Advancement Portal, the new portal combines meetings-education news with RecertTrack’s recertification and e-certification tracking tool, which allows meeting professionals to record their continuing education courses and credits online as a way of tracking their progress toward recertification. The subscription-based system sends alerts when users need to recertify and also notifies subscribers of relevant education opportunities in their industry.

The service currently tracks 27 meetings and hospitality industry certifications, including the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP), Certified Association Executive (CAE), Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP), Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) and Certified Hotel Administrator (CHA) designations.

“The industry is taking continuing education more seriously and we are now seeing some 20,000 hits a month on the RecertTrack website,” Cedric Calhoun, CEO and founder of RecertTrack, said in a statement. “Following feedback from the meetings industry, the new look and feel of the website now provides the industry with a user-friendly platform to assist certified professionals in keeping their qualifications up-to-date, as well as providing instant access to knowledge and information in one centralized location that will allow them to advance their careers in the sector.”
