Event Planning Schools Reviews

Real-Life Feedback from Real-Life People

Many people write me asking for recommendations on different event planning schools and certifications. The problem is, I can't possibly take every course out there! YOU, however, as a community, can!

If you've taken any online event planning courses, classes or certifications, OR if you've attended any event planning schools or universities, please let us know your experience! Let us know if you thought the class was helpful, worth the money, and if it helped you begin your career.

By taking just a few minutes to give us your feedback, you are helping countless others who need your guidance.

Thanks so much for helping others in this way!
