Session selection is now under way! Check out www.ExhibitorFastTrak.com
for the schedules.
Pro tip: Compare the required sessions you still need to the locations where each session is being offered, so you can try to make it to the location where you can get closest to completion. To see the locations where each required session is offered, go to www.CTSM.com/requiredsessionlocations.asp
Candidates: If all the sessions remaining on your transcript are offered at a FastTrak conference, you may take your comprehensive exam at the same location. The exam is offered Friday afternoon at each location. Don't forget to register for your exam at least one month prior to exam date. Here's the link: www.CTSM.com/comprehensiveexamregistration-s.asp
CTSM5 Sessions Offered at FastTraks
Those of you with 5 or more years of experience may opt out of some of the more basic CTSM-required sessions. Use the Session Substitution Request form at www.CTSM.com/substitutionrequest.asp
to determine which required sessions could be replaced by a CTSM5 session.
For example: In Providence, the following session is being offered:
502 (CTSM5) GLOBAL EXHIBIT MARKETING
Introduction to International Meeting Planning: Western Europe
Looking at the substitution form, that session could be substituted for 20618, 20918, or 52218.
Required session 52218 is only offered at FastTrak
San Francisco and Fort Worth this year. If you are completing your final required sessions and one of them is 52218, and you can't attend the Providence or Chicago FastTrak, you may request a special waiver to substitute 502 or 510 for 52218. Complete the substitution form (502 for 52218 if Providence, 510 for 52218 if Chicago). The 5 years experience requirement does not apply in this case.
