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 by earning HSMAI’s Certified Revenue Management Executive (CRME) certification.

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 apply for the certification in advance will 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 Monday, June 26, 2023 (the day before HSMAI’s Marketing Strategy Conference and two days before HSMAI ROC) in Toronto, Ontario:

  • 12:30 – 5:30 pm: Review Course
  • 5:30 – 6:30: Optional opportunity to take the exam onsite

Get Certified!

CRME Review Course participants who have applied and paid 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 26th, you will have the opportunity to retake the exam at another time.)

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

  1. Apply. Complete the application on or before Friday, June 23, 2023. Download the writable PDF application and return it to HSMAI (via You'll receive instructions 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.
  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, Director of Education & Certification, at or 703-506-2010.

Can’t Be In Toronto?

If you’re unable to attend the in-person review course in Toronto in June, HSMAI’s Hotel 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.
