It was announced that more than 15,000 attended International Woodworking Fair last month in Atlanta, and more than 400 attended the Cabinet Makers Association educational sessions. However, thousands of woodworking professionals did not or could not attend. The CMA now plans to convert all 13 of our sessions offered at IWF into live webinars starting later this fall. Both core curriculum sessions and CEU sessions will be part of the inaugural webinar series. The sessions will be announced in the CMA e-newsletter, at our website and in the trade press.

The CMA programming is designed to be a cohesive set of educational sessions covering nearly every aspect of owning, operating and managing a successful, sustainable and profitable woodworking business. There is a goal to be reached upon successful completion of the sessions — a professional designation that will set you apart.
You are not required to be a CMA member to become CMA certified, but you must meet minimum requirements before you will be tested for your personal certification. We also do not have a time limit on earning a certification nor are you required to attend any particular session. You just need to pass the testing. The knowledge needed to pass the final omnibus test will be taught in our sessions. However, once you enrolled in the program, you must earn a minimum of 4.0 CEU credits each year you wish to continue to be part of the program. So you can go at your own pace and pay for your education as time and money allow.
Now you can become among the first to earn this soon-to-be-industry standard designation. Visit CMA’s website to see program details or to apply to be part of the elite group of CMA certified professionals.
