Created by hoteliers for hoteliers, the Certified Hospitality
Digital Marketer (CHDM) certification recognizes digital marketing professionals for their expertise in leveraging digital channels to maximize online revenues. CHDMs are the digital marketing
experts hotels need today.
The face-to-face CHDM Review Course is for candidates pursuing the Certified Hospitality Digital Marketer (CHDM) certification.
The course covers the key concepts outlined in the certification study guide, and is a great last “cram session”
before taking the certification exam.
Review course participants are required to read the study guide in
advance of this fast-paced class. A digital copy of the study guide is included in the course registration fee.
Participants who apply for the certification in advance will have the
opportunity to take the CHDM exam onsite immediately following the review course. You must provide your own laptop in order to take the exam onsite.
The next live, in-person CHDM Review
Course will be on Monday, June 26, 2023 (the day before HSMAI’s Marketing
Strategy Conference) in Toronto, Ontario:
- 12:30 – 4:30 pm: Review Course
- 4:30 – 5:30: Optional opportunity to take the exam onsite
CHDM Review Course participants who have applied and paid for the certification in advance have the opportunity to take the CHDM exam onsite immediately following the
course (while all the knowledge is fresh!). For the exam, you have 60 minutes to answer 50 multiple choice questions. A passing score is 70% or higher. (If you happen not to pass the test on the
26th, you will have the opportunity to retake the exam at another time.)
To take the exam onsite immediately following the course, you must:
- Apply. Complete the application on
or before Friday, June 23, 2023. Download the writable PDF application
and return it to HSMAI (via firstname.lastname@example.org). You'll receive instruction to pay for the certification online.
- If you’ve already
applied and paid the fee at an earlier time, you'll be able to take the exam onsite if you choose.
- Bring a laptop. The exam is online so you must be able to connect to the
Wi-Fi provided by HSMAI.
If you have questions, need additional information, or would like guidance on the process,

Can’t Be In Toronto?
If you’re unable to attend the in-person review course in Toronto in June, HSMAI’s Hotel Digital Marketing Essentials course is a good alternative. Taught by one of the same instructors as the review course,
the Essentials course is delivered live online through a series of six weekly sessions.
