There are 2 types of educational tracks that you can embark on with SACEOS.
Courses:These are bite-sized modules that are constantly refreshed and designed to give you anoverview into different topics ranging anything from contract law to technology in MICE.Our courses allow you to stay updated despite your busy schedule and are typicallycollaborations with educational institutes, delivered by professionals in the specific field.
Programmes:These are professional, certified programmes that are held consistently throughout the yearwhich will help to advance your career in MICE & Events. They typically run a little longerthan courses, mostly across 3 days and are guided by a team of experts. These programmescover a range of knowledge areas and allow you to master industry skills such as projectmanagement, operations, event architecture, bidding techniques, proposals, marketing,budgeting, etc.
Currently, all courses/programmes are conducted online via a Zoom classroom. To ensurethe highest level of interaction and collaboration during the lessons, all participants arerequired to turn on their cameras.
Certain programmes may also be conducted in a physical classroom. However, this is subjectto class size and safety considerations.
You will receive a certificate of participation after successfully completing any of the shortcourses.
You will earn a professional certificate for every successfully completed programme.Certificates for Foundation programmes are issued by SACEOS while certificates forInternational Certification programmes are issued by either the International Association ofExhibitions and Events (IAEE) or the Events Industry Council (EIC).
Yes, as long as the dates do not overlap, you may apply for multiple courses at the sametime to stay updated on key industry topics. However, for a valuable learning experience, werecommend that you take these courses individually to ensure maximum retention ofknowledge.
There is no specific order in which you need to attend the courses. We encourage everyoneto take as many courses as possible that interest you. As for programmes, we recommendthat you enroll in P-courses first (i.e. PEvM, PEM, PCM) which will help in clockingContinuing Education (CE) hours for you to ultimately progress to C-courses (i.e. CEM andCMP), which require a minimum amount of working experience and accumulated CE hoursas prerequisites.
Learning with your team can help to promote a more creative and collaborative team asindividuals gain more confidence in executing bold ideas that they can bring back to theoffice. Compared to enrolling in a course/programme alone, team enrollment encouragesyou and your colleagues to push each other out of your comfort zones and share newperspectives to make the most out of the training.
