The CMAE has today announced that four more MDP courses will return to classroom learning in 2022, with MDP part 1 taking place in Manchester, part 2 taking place in Stirling and Dublin and Part 3 taking place in Prague.

The MDP part 1, which is the first step on the CMAE’s renowned Management Development Programme focusing on club operations, takes place on the 24-28 January at the Marriott Victoria & Albert hotel in Manchester’s city centre.

Two MDP Part 2 courses will take place at the Stirling Court hotel in Scotland on the 7-11 February and Portmarnock Hotel And Golf Links in Dublin, Ireland on the 7-11 March. The MDP part 2 takes an approach on building and managing the club team and will help Club Managers to improve their management and critical thinking skill levels including time management, negotiation, team building and conflict resolution.

Part 3 Strategy & Leadership will take place at the Hotel Majestic Plaza in Prague, Czech Republic on the 17-21 January. MDP 3 Strategy and Leadership is aimed at those managers who wish to learn how to enhance their management style and tap into their leadership potential in order to operate the club as a business.

All of the courses are now open for registration with the exception of the MDP 2 in Stirling which is fully booked. Many places already having been booked by those who had registered their interest in the courses previously.

The news comes after the CMAE recently announced that the MDP Golf Management course will return to St Andrews this December and that course is fully booked.

Commenting was CMAE Director of Education Torbjorn Johansson who said “We are taking our first steps into classroom learning again. We are proud over what we accomplished online the last 18 months but the demand for in-person training is overwhelming. We will continue to do training online, but hope to be able to launch all Management Development Programmes (MDPs) in all our locations in 2022. We will monitor the situation and also create new policies and procedures to make sure the welfare of our delegates comes in first place”.
