Please note: Participation in this workshop is not required in order to take the ICE-CCP exam and does not guarantee a passing score.

About the Workshop

This workshop is designed for individuals interested in taking the ICE-CCP exam or those interested in learning more about the ICE-CCP content areas. Facilitated by subject matter experts, this interactive workshop will: 

  • Define who the credentialing professional is, and who the ICE-CCP exam is written for
  • Provide an overview of each content domain of the examination content outline
  • Review considerations for sitting for the exam

Upon registration, attendees will receive access to the ICE-CCP self-study guide to support participation in the workshop. During each session, attendees will have an opportunity to engage in activates to deepen their understanding of the content ask questions of experts, and connect with their fellow colleagues also interested in earning their ICE-CCP.

"The I.C.E. workshop was incredibly helpful and a major part of my success in passing the ICE-CCP examination to become certified. I personally felt the value in attending live sessions taught by highly reputable, live instructors who have taken the exam, achieved ICE-CCP certification, and are proven and respected in the industry. This workshop helped with direction in my study, provided the ability to ask specific questions and seek clarification. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking the ICE-CCP certification."
