An Exciting Announcement
We are thrilled to announce that OMCP has been acquired by the top social media education and certification company in the world: National Institute for Social Media (NISM).
As you know, we at OMCP work hard to verify the skills and knowledge of online marketers. We do this to help marketing professionals grow their careers and help employers know that they are hiring top marketers with only current, verified credentials.
Being newly acquired by NISM will enable us to take our verification and accreditation services to a whole new level. In other words, with backing from NISM, we will be able to finally set a much-needed gold standard for digital marketers worldwide.
OMCP’s co-founder Michael Stebbins says it best:
“NISM has already established its reputation and community in a very effective way. Now, NISM and OMCP are the only organizations that offer platform-agnostic, reputable certifications. This will continue to be the gold standard for marketing professionals to grow and develop their careers.”
What Does NISM’s Acquisition of OMCP Mean for You?
Everyone in our community–marketing professionals, hiring managers and employers, and education providers–will benefit from this partnership.
Here is what you can expect:
- An established gold standard that employers and marketing professionals can continue trust.

OMCP also brings specific advantages to NISM–and they’re already yielding results
