The Presentation Guild is offering a pre-conference bootcamp at this year’s Presentation Summit to help you study for and take our latest Professional Certifications exam—Certified Presentation Expert™ – PowerPoint. This year’s conference is a fully hybrid experience held from September 26–29. Attend the conference in person at The Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach or participate from anywhere with an internet connection.

In the fall, the Guild is launching the Certified Presentation Expert™ – PowerPoint exam. It is the next certification above our current specialist level. Be one of the first to attend our Expert Certification Bootcamp, which will debut at the Presentation Summit. Then sign up to take the exam in the fall and elevate your credentials.

NEW FOR 2021!

Pre-conference workshop held in person.

Instructor: Guild President Emerita Echo Swinford 
This bootcamp prepares you to study for and pass the Certified Presentation Expert™ – PowerPoint exam. The professional at the expert level is expected to have comprehensive knowledge, skills, and efficiency at crafting presentations; work independently; have at least 18 months of experience and/or training with at least 3,000 hours of direct presentation craftsmanship; and have attained the Certified Presentation Specialist™ – PowerPoint certification.

The expert-level Cert Prep Bootcamp is $495 and includes a $200 voucher toward the cost of the exam. For anyone intent on upping their specialist certification, you are essentially getting this full day of instruction and training for under $300.

In addition to the $200 voucher, attendees will receive

  • Instruction that covers the major categories of skills and knowledge that will be assessed on the exam
  • A study and practice reference guide for the exam
  • A practice exam and access to two additional practice exams that can be taken at a later date

This full-day session will be held in person the day before the conference begins. Look for virtual bootcamps that cover specialist and expert exams to be offered in 2022.
