Certified professional services marketer (CPSM) Program

Certification is a time-tested means of measuring a professional’s credentials. The Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) sets the standard of excellence for marketing and business development professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction industry. Because the CPSM designation is associated with leadership, the process of qualifying for and passing the test, in addition to obtaining the required number of continuing education units, is intensive. Individuals who are CPSMs demonstrate their on-going commitment to the industry, and their ability to perform in all Six Domains of Marketing, criteria that is recognized by many professional services firms.


Certified Professional Services Marketers (CPSM) are part of something special, an elite group of marketers who have invested in themselves. Each CPSM is committed to learning the “must have” skills required for today’s hyper-competitive market. CPSMs understand and embrace the need for continuous improvement through education and how it enhances their opportunities for professional success.

SMPS, the authority on marketing professional services, has published the Six Domains of Practice for Professional Services Marketers. These Domains represent the body of knowledge, disciplines, and skills required for leaders in professional services marketing.

Through the SMPS certification program, an employer can be assured that their marketing professionals have what it takes to generate profitable business through demonstrated proficiency in the domains of practice.

When it comes to hiring

“When hiring marketers, I always give CPSMs preference. It shows a commitment to our industry and their willingness to stay current with the latest trends due to the 3- year re-certification requirement.”
