If you are a mid- to senior-level incentive travel professional looking to upgrade yourself, there is a new certification available on the market for you to do just that.

Launched by the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE), the Certified Incentive Travel Professional (CITP) exam is aimed specifically at incentive travel planners in corporations and agencies, as well as senior managers on the supplier side - that is, DMOs, CVBs, DMCs, hotels, cruise companies, venues, etc. 

In terms of eligibility, the exam is open to those with five years of full-time employment in the incentive travel industry and 40 hours of continuous professional education - of which 25% must be specifically produced by SITE and related to incentive travel; or have three years of full-time employment in the industry and 40 hours of continuous professional education - of which 25% must be specifically produced by SITE and related to incentive travel. 

In order to help participants prepare for the exam, SITE also offers an online preparation course at US$395 for SITE members and US$495 for non-members.
