OMCP PDU QualifiedIf you’ve been active in the Online Marketing community, it counts.


Your OMCP certifications are valid for one year from the date of qualification and annual renewal is required through a passing score on the OMCP or OMCA Exam.

Interested in a two year certificate?  Consider OMCP’s Professional Development Units (PDUs) program.  Not only will you be encouraged and recognized for your ongoing personal and professional development, you can use the PDUs you earn to extend your certification for an additional year through participation in approved industry activities.

Accrual of 100 PDUs during the year is required for an OMCP certification extension.  Participation in the following organizations, events, training programs, and communities is recognized by OMCP for certification extension.*

To submit your PDUs for OMCP certification extension, provide the necessary verification for review through your member dashboard. Verification of events and achievements for  PDUs must show a completion date within six months of certification expiration in order to count towards an extension.
