Educational and training organisations can apply to become an APIEM accredited Centre of Excellence that endorses its events management curriculum as being of an international standard. The audit fee to achieve Centre of Excellence accreditation is US$1000.00. This fee enables the APIEM Centre of Excellence logo to be used by the institution for four years and entitles six faculty members to become APIEM Members of Fellows for four years. APIEM Centres of Excellence will be promoted as such through the APIEM website where there will be a link to the Accredited Centres website. The Accredited Centre will receive an MoU from APIEM that will enable the Centre of Excellence to collaborate with APIEM on events management curriculum design and development, and joint research with other accredited Centres of Excellence and APIEM executives. APIEM Centres of Excellence will be able to use the special APIEM Centre of Excellence logo on their promotional and publicity material, their website and course and module/unit handbooks.
