CRME Review Course

September 28, 2021

Register now!

Get Ready!

As revenue optimization in the hospitality industry continues to grow as an art and a science, you can confirm and demonstrate your knowledge, experience, and capabilities in the field by earning HSMAI’s Certified Revenue Management Executive (CRME) certification.

Learn more about the CRME.

Get Set!

The face-to-face CRME Review Course is for candidates pursuing the Certified Revenue Management Executive (CRME) 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 have applied for the certification in advance have the opportunity to take the CRME 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 CRME Review Course will be on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 (the day before HSMAI ROC) in Dallas, Texas:

  • 12:30 – 4:30 pm: Review Course
  • 4:30 – 5:30: Optional opportunity to take the exam onsite

Get Certified!

Decide if you will take the exam immediately following the course

CRME Review Course participants who have applied for the certification in advance have the opportunity to take the CRME 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 28th, you will have the opportunity to retake the exam again another day.)

To take the exam onsite immediately following the course, you must:

  1. Apply.  Complete the application and return it to HSMAI ( on or before Monday, September 20, 2021, and pay the fee online. Print an application or complete the writable PDF application.
    • If you’ve already applied and paid the application fee at an earlier time, we’ll apply that to your examination fee.
    • If you have already submitted an application and been approved, you can skip this step and go straight to #2.
  2. 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, contact Kathy Tindell, Program Director for HSMAI University, at or 703-506-2010.

Can’t Be In Dallas?

If you’re unable to attend the in-person review course in Dallas in September, HSMAI’s Revenue Optimization Essentials course is a good alternative. Taught by the same instructor as the review course, the Essentials course is delivered live online through a series of six weekly sessions.
