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

OMCP encourages constant updates of practical online marketing knowledge and best practices.   These are tracked in the form of Professional Development Units (PDUs).

Because of the rapid changes in digital marketing, OMCP Certifications last two years when renewed with PDUs.  To gain two years of certification, the candidate must use one of the following methods to gain the full two years:

  1. Extend the certification for the second year by participating in recognized organizations, events, training programs, and communities to earn PDUs.
  2. Or: Renew your certification for the additional year by passing the OMCP  or OMCA exams.

Currently, accrual of 100 PDUs during the year is required for  extension. Completion of PDU events must have occured within 90 days of renewal date to be considered for renewal.

To submit PDUs for OMCP Re-Certification, simply provide the necessary verification for review through your member dashboard.

The following programs are currently recognized for PDU credit.
