Certified Incentive Specialist and Certified Incentive Travel Professional.



The Certified Incentive Specialist (CIS) designation is awarded to you upon successful completion of an online exam. The exam can be taken following a two-day, in-person workshop or by registering for the CIS Online and reviewing the workshop materials at your own pace.

Workshop content includes how incentive programs are designed, what motivates people to achieve greater levels of performance and the positive impact of incentive travel and business results.



The Certified Incentive Travel Professional (CITP) exam is SITE’s mid-level qualification aimed at incentive travel professionals with at least five years of full-time experience. It is part of a suite of certifications that includes the entry-level CIS certification and the director-level CITE designation (currently in redevelopment).

Designed specifically for planners of incentive travel experiences in corporations and agencies, the CITP is also relevant to senior managers on the supplier side – DMOs, CVBs, DMCs, hotels, cruise companies, venues.
