Study, Training & Accredited Training Providers

Accredited Training Providers

Get a quick start on your MEF Professional Certifications with instructor-led education! More than 80% of successfully certified candidates use MEF Accredited Training providers.

MEF has developed a network of Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs) to provide MEF-CECP, MEF-SDCP, and MEF-SNCP training in preparation for certification. These industry subject matter experts are audited through MEF's accreditation processes to ensure that their courseware meets or exceeds the requirements for their students to achieve MEF Professional Certifications.

MEF Premier Accredited Training Providers

Instructor–led on-site or virtual/remote training through an MEF Premier Accredited Training Provider (MEF-PATP) is the preferred and utilized by more than 80% of successful MEF-CECP candidates. This option enables more thorough yet focused coverage of the study materials, and can be big time savings for busy professionals.  Exams are typically delivered immediately following training.

While the MEF Training Provider Accreditation program verifies the basic competency of the training companies, there are a number of individual factors—including the cumulative pass rate, course length and tuition cost of the course which are not regulated by MEF and should be considered when evaluating a MEF-PATP company.

Why study with an MEF-ATP rather than going at it alone?

  • MEF-PATP training programs range from three to five days significantly reducing your study time.
  • Learn from the subject matter experts audited for their experience and monitored by MEF.
  • Nothing beats an interactive, instructor-led learning experience!
