OMCA - Online Marketing Certified Associate

For those who communicate digital marketing concepts or manage digital marketing teams, the OMCA certification is the standard to verify knowledge of digital marketing concepts and understanding of practices across multiple digital marketing disciplines. It is often used as a minimum requirement for marketing teams at agencies or groups who train or hire to OMCA standards.

For more experienced digital marketers, the OMCP certification verifies deeper skills, experience, and education required to implement digital marketing practices as a specialist. OMCP certified professionals are in demand as subject matter experts, consultants, and are often asked to teach or lead initiatives within larger organizations. Customers, co-workers, employers, and clients know that an OMCP with current status has verified, up-to-date skills in digital marketing.
