Who May Take the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course
Please note that this is not an introductory course. It is intended for professional party planners including those who have achieved a high level of success in the basic Party Planner Certificate Course offered by International Association of Professions Career College.
These advanced certificate courses are for outstanding graduates of IAP Career College basic certificate courses. To be accepted into the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course, you should have earned a grade of at least 80% on the final test for the Party Planner Certificate Course Online offered by International Association of Professions Career College. Students earning a passing grade of between 60% and 80% on the basic course may be admitted to a Master course if space is available.
If you are a professional party planner who wishes to enroll in the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course, but you have not yet taken the prerequisite course from IAP Career College, you may take the basic course as a corequisite with (at the same time as) the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course.
You can take advantage of this option by registering and paying for the basic course at the same time as you apply for the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course, then earn a passing grade for the basic course.
To ensure that the student has personal access to a Faculty Member, only 15 students will be accepted into each Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course.
What Happens in the Party Planner Master Professional Certification Program
The Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course is an online learning course with one optional assignment and one required assignment described below in the “ASSIGNMENTS” paragraphs. Students must earn a passing grade to successfully complete the course and receive their Master Party Planning Professional (MPPP) certification.

The Party Planner Master Professional Certification Course has a recommended completion date of 12 weeks from the starting date or 120 hours. However, you may choose to complete the Party Planner Master Certification Program in as little as 4 weeks or as long as 24 weeks, depending on your schedule.
