Certified Practice Management Consultants

AB’s practice management support doesn’t stop with an assessment. Once you identify your top priorities, our team of Certified Practice Management Consultants (CPMC) can guide you, one-on-one, through a personalized learning program.

We developed the CPMC accreditation in close collaboration with Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management to serve as a complement to the Digital Coach. To be certified, AB professionals complete a training module and assessment focused on team problem solving, building and managing effective teams, communicating clearly and dealing with uncertainty.

Leveraging this comprehensive training, AB’s consultants can help you evaluate results from the Digital Coach session, producing a personalized, actionable plan to achieve your business goals.

AB team members that obtain the CPMC designation are uniquely equipped to coach clients. Designees complete an extensive course, pass a three-part exam, and then complete a two-day capstone training designed by Vanderbilt University. Advisors can be assured that they are receiving expert practice management guidance when working with AB.”
