Getting Certified at OMCP

What is a Digital Marketing Certification? 

Clients and employers prefer working with marketers whose skills, experience, and education are verified by an industry certification.  OMCP helps marketers to distinguish themselves in a crowded marketplace, and clients to make informed decisions.

The OMCP certifications verify up-to-date knowledge, education, and experience as required by the industry.  The standards are derived through a combination of role delineation studies, polls of hiring managers, and are audited by a wide range of practitioners, author-experts, and educators.  Exams are written by industry leaders, published authors, and are peer-reviewed on a regular basis.  Experience, exam results, entitlement and education are verified by OMCP staff before certification is awarded.  OMCP competencies are taught industry-wide at hundreds of universities and institutes, and are not proprietary to any one vendor platform or training vendor.

“So in those cases, I think certification could help somebody make that leap or may take that next step to a bigger, more responsibility type of job.”
