 Outline for the Complete Event Planner Course

The Planning Events Course  
Online Video Course

The Planning Events Course is a step-by-step guide on how to plan events; it is designed to walk you through every important step in the planning process, from beginning to end.  By utilizing the information from this course, you can save yourself years of trial-and-error learning and prevent many novice mistakes.  Upon completion of this course, you will have a thorough understand of every element that is part of planning an event, how the different elements fit together and where they fall in the planning process.   

The course is presented entirely in streaming video format; videos are created using PowerPoint presentations with narrative voice-over instruction.  The course also includes dozens of downloadable documents to supplement your learning; documents designed so that you can download, print, and keep them for your future reference.  Documents are presented in the universally-accepted PDF format; Adobe Reader is required (it is free and completely safe, download instructions are included in the course).  

There are thirty-six modules in nine sections; each module is anywhere from 20-75 minutes long.  

Here's an outline of topics that are covered in the Planning Events Course:

Section One: The First Steps  
Four modules totaling 70 minutes of viewing time

The most difficult part is often the beginning! In this section you will learn the first steps to take in planning your event.  You will learn the preliminary essential terms that every successful event planner must understand; this section includes a downloadable Glossary of Terms.  Learn how to create RFPs (what are RFPs and why are they important?), how to do a site inspection, how to create a preliminary budget, and how (and why) you should create a preliminary agenda.  


Section Two: Venues
Two modules totaling 30 minutes of viewing time

One of the most important decisions you'll make as a planner is where to host your event.  Learn how to determine when you need a hotel vs. when you need a venue. Learn what specific things to look for in a venue; how to do a site inspection and why site inspections are necessary.  We discuss suggested types of venues for different types of events; including real-life examples of various venues I've used in my events and why.  


Section Three: Contracts, Licenses, & Permits   
Two modules totaling 35 minutes of viewing time

The legal stuff!  Contracts are a major part of becoming an event planner, as they are necessary to insure that you, your client, and your event are protected.  Learn the basic elements that should be included in contracts, and the different types of contracts you might need.  You will receive numerous sample contracts to download and keep.  Also, the different types of event insurance that you might need, as well as an explanation of licenses, permits, & permissions and how they apply to your event.


Section Four: Registration
Three modules totaling 38 minutes of viewing time
In this section you'll learn the various definitions of "registration" as they apply to event planning; as well as why you need to create a registration process. Review the different registration processes for different events, suggested registration software, and the difference between pre-reg and on-site registration.  Discover the types of material or welcome packets you might need for different types of events.  


Section Five: Managing Event Space
Four modules totaling 57 minutes of viewing time
Setting up the perfect event involves more than just decor.  Explore how to work within event space to maximize the attendee experience; including the importance of understanding "flow," why it's important, and examples of good and bad flow.  I use real-life sample diagrams of events where the set-up was not conducive to good flow, and how I changed the set-up to optimize the space. Learn the most fundamental sets that every planner must know.  We wrap up this section with an overview of the basics of audio-visual terminology.


Section Six: Food & Beverage
Six modules totaling 106 minutes of viewing time
Food & beverage is a major part of any event, and therefore is an important section in this course.  Learn how your venue choice will affect your F&B process, as well as special considerations for outdoor events in public spaces.  Discover the process of selecting menus and how to work with your venue or caterer.  Working around special dietary needs is a vital part of your job; so it's important to learn the terminology that is used with F&B.  Finally, learn the different ways in which your hotel, venue, or caterer will charge for F&B to ensure you're maximizing your budget.  


Section Seven: Decor 
Four modules totaling 53 minutes of viewing time
Decor is usually considered one of the most visual, and perhaps FUN, part of event planning!  This entire section is made up of visual examples and photos explaining different elements of decor.  You will learn how you can use tables, centerpieces, furniture, and lighting to add to your decor, as well as other tips for making the biggest impact with limited budgets.  


Section Eight: Working with Vendors, Entertainment, and VIPs
Five modules totaling 78 minutes of viewing time
With every event you'll ever plan, you'll be working with vendors, entertainment, and (usually) VIPs.  Learn how to select and work with vendors, what contracts are needed for each, and how to schedule load in and strike for your vendors at your event. Discover how to find the right talent for your event; as well as special considerations when working with celebrities, and the importance of riders.  Learn how to work with VIPs and why they are important to you.


Section Nine: The Final Steps
Two modules totaling 27 minutes of viewing time
All the planning in the world can never predict how your event will go when it's time to go "live"!  Explore the often-overlooked steps necessary to successfully manage your event on-site.  Understand the importance of staff at your events and how to find and hire staff or volunteers.  And finally, learn how to finalize and reconcile your billing; wrapping up with the concept of post-cons and when they might apply to your event.  

PLUS, you will also receive these BONUSES:

Event Planning Checklist:  Planners live and die by their "To Do Lists"; but it's challenging to know if you're remembering all of your "to do's."  To help get you started, I'm including my own personal itemized checklist that is a conglomeration of all of the different types of events I've planned; organized in a hypothetical timeline.  I've included every possible task to help keep you on track; plus left space for you to personalize your list for each of your events.    


Glossary of Terms: The event planning industry has its own language; and knowing this language is imperative to your success.  Throughout the course you will continue to learn new terms and how they apply to planning; but this printable Glossary is a must-have reference and guide for the many times you will come across a term you aren't yet familiar with.    


The Complete Event Planner Course
ALSO Includes All of the Specialty Courses:


Pricing Your Services ($47 value)
One module totaling 55 minutes of viewing time
Regardless of whether you hope to work for an event planning company, as an independent contractor for companies, or if you hope to start your own event planning business, it is imperative that you understand how to charge for your time.  This video course covers the six main methods of charging for your services as an event planner; as well as the factors to consider when determining your rate.




Event Planning Resumes and Beyond ($47 value)
One module totaling 65 minutes of viewing time
Once you start learning how to plan events, it's time to start looking for work!  However, times are competitive and as a beginner, it can be challenging to make your resume stick out.  Not only that, but most beginners make some detrimental mistakes on their resumes and cover letters that will guarantee they end up on the "trash pile."  This video tells you what those mistakes are, what to do instead, and tips & tricks on getting noticed and landing the interview.




Start Your Own Event Planning Business ($97 value)
Many people dream of not only becoming an event planner, but of starting their own event planning business and working for themselves. Even if you don't plan on starting your own business right away, it's probably something you might consider someday.  In this course you will learn all of the technicalities of starting a business; including registering your business legally, choosing a business entity or legal structure (LLC, S Corp, C Corp, etc), obtaining federal Tax IDs/EINs, the basics of accounting, and financing a start-up.  

 



Fundraising & Sponsorship ($47 value)
Four modules totaling one hour and twenty-six minutes of viewing time
If you dream of combining your love of event planning with a way to give back to the world, you would thrive as a fundraising special event planner.  Creating events that help non-profits or other organizations succeed is one of the most rewarding career paths you can take. This course builds upon what you learned in the Planning Events Course and teaches elements specific to planning fundraising events; such as budgeting fundraising events, the importance of sponsorship, managing sponsors, planning on a budget, and raising money at your events. 




Corporate Event Planning ($97 value)
Five modules totaling two hours and 51 minutes of viewing time
If you have a business background or if you have an interest in being an integral part of business success, then you will make a great corporate event planner.  A career in corporate event planning can be a lucrative and exciting path; that can also involve travel and incredibly exciting events with large budgets.  The elements that are taught in this course can be incredibly useful when planning any event that deals with businesses, VIPs, and holding events at hotels. 


PLUS:  Your Certificate of Completion

At the end of the course, there is an online final test; and upon passing the test, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.  This certifies to any future potential employer or client that you completed and passed the Complete Event Planner Course.  

Of course, as you know I do not believe in saying you are "certified" as that is a misleading trick in the industry; but naturally you want something to show your hard work and dedication that you've put toward your career.  The certificate can be framed and displayed in your office as a qualified event planner!

Testimonials

Here are just a few of the many real-life testimonials about my courses, from people just like you.  

"I have to write and tell you that I listened to what you taught in your course, and IT WORKED!!!  Thanks to you, I was able to secure a great volunteer position with a local non-profit in my town; and then last week they offered me a full-time, paid position!  I literally can never thank you enough; you single-handedly helped me achieve my dream!"  ~A.A. 

"I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I recently landed a job as an event coordinator at a major university in my home town.  I absorbed all of the wisdom you share, and applied it to my life; and it worked just like you said it would!  Your help is greatly needed, and all those out there that can't afford to go back to school wholeheartedly appreciate your enthusiasm and unending knowledge.  Keep up the great work!"   ~Z. G.  


"Thank you SO MUCH... I finished up my classes over the weekend, and my head is SO FULL right now with so much great information!  I love this class and feel so prepared for my interview tomorrow when I take on Director of Events at a local non-profit!"  ~K.S.

"The event planner course was wonderful.  I have been thinking of pursuing a career in event planning for awhile.  I debated going back to school, and looked at several internet courses.  I found your course seemed to offer the best materials for the best price.   I have found the information to be very useful; you are very honest and offer great advice.  Thank you!"  ~T.J.  



Money-Back Guarantee

I completely understand that signing up for anything online is scary; I've been "had" a few times myself.  I also understand that you might not be entirely sure this is right for you or your situation. That is why I offer a 100% money-back guarantee.  As long as it's within thirty days and you've only watched a few of the videos, simply email me and ask for a refund.  

I also use PayPal, which is single most secure and trusted payment processing software in the world. You don't need a PayPal account, just a credit card; but you'll still be protected by PayPal's terms of service.  

This means you can "kick the tires" and make sure this is for you….. completely risk-free.  The only thing you are risking is losing out on your dream career, unless you get started today!  

Frequently Asked Questions

"How long does the course take to complete?  I'm worried I just don't have the time….."

All of my event planning courses are designed for busy people just like you.  They are hosted completely online, so you can progress at your own pace, on your own schedule, as your time allows.  Once you sign up, you have immediate access to an exclusive Member's Area; this is where you sign in each time you're ready to complete more of the course.  

The Complete Event Planner Course consists of just under twenty hours of total video time; most of the segments are under twenty minutes each, so that you can complete the course in limited time segments.  One student completed the course in a record-breaking three days, and had a job just a few weeks later!  I've had a number of students land volunteer opportunities, interviews, and even jobs before they've even finished the course.  Others take longer; it all depends on you and your schedule.  You have lifetime access to the course.  

If you gave up one hour of TV (or Facebook, or any other social media) two nights a week, it would only take you a few weeks to complete the course!  You could be starting your dream job in less than two months!  


"I'll Take it Later, I can't afford it right now…"

I understand, just as much as anyone, what it's like to have limited funds.  However, time for some tough love….how much do you spend eating out or on Starbuck's each month?  What about those happy hour drinks or the random purchases online?  Could you cut out cable or other costs in order to create a new life?  

If you add those up in a year, I can imagine you can find enough for this small investment in your future.  

If you eat out with friends twice a month and spend an average of $50 (a basic dinner with drinks), then it would only take ten nights over the course of a year to pay for your course!  

And this is money that you will make back in your very first event.  Although I completely understand what it's like to go through tough financial times, more often than not money is just a deep-seated excuse where fear gets to keep you from pursuing your dreams.  It all depends on your priorities.  

And, for every day that you put off your future, there's somebody else who decided to take the plunge and is out there getting YOUR clients and planning YOUR events.....


"How do I take the course?  Do you mail anything to me?"

In order to keep costs low and to keep it accessible to anyone at any time, I host the course completely online.  Once you sign up, you will be immediately taken to an exclusive Member's Area, where you will create a login password.  Each time you want to complete more of the course, you simply log in and watch more videos.

I also include dozens of downloadable documents, which you can keep and print out for your future reference.  

You can go back at any time to watch the videos again; you will also have the option to pause, rewind, and fast-forward. This gives you the greatest freedom and allows you to work around your schedule.  You also have lifetime access to the videos, in case you need a "refresher course" in the future.  



"I don't live in the U.S; can I still take the course and does the course still apply to me?"

Absolutely! The foundational elements, which is what this event planner course is about, are the same for any event, anywhere in the world. Some of the terms might be slightly different, but otherwise this applies to anyone who wants to plan events in their country!

I have had dozens of students from Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, and various countries in Africa.  

And, as I mentioned before, I hosted the entire course online so that you can access it from anywhere in the world.



"How do I know you're not a scam?"

This is a fair question; and a question you should be asking before you spend any money online.

I only take payment through PayPal. Even if you don't have an account, you can pay by credit card through PayPal. PayPal has a policy that protects you if you never receive your product, or if you decide I'm a scammer.

If, on the other hand, you decide that my information is worthless and it's not for you, then I will offer a 100% refund within 30 days. 

Hopefully this ensures you that I offer a quality, reliable product and that you are protected.



"I'm ready!  How do I sign up?"

Please click here or on the orange button in the banner below, where you can pay with a credit card using PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account).  Once your payment goes through, you will be taken to a secure, "Member's Only" page where you will need to sign in each time you're ready to watch more videos and continue on with your course.  You will have immediate access to the documents and all video modules.  

Good luck and I can't wait to help you begin your career as an event planner!
