Certification support group coming soon
One of the many benefits IABC offers to professional communicators is the option to become certified. IABC offers two certifications:
- Communication Management Professional (CMP) — For generalist, specialist and other business communicators established in their careers as managers and looking to demonstrate their competence.
- Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) —For highly skilled business communicators practiced in providing strategic communication advice and counseling to an organization’s leadership.
For more about certification, including how it can benefit you, visit http://gcccouncil.org/.
Certification exams will be administered later this year. To help those considering these certifications, we’re starting a local Certification Prep and Support Group. Both certification and participation in the group is open to all interested communicators — members and non-members. The self-governing group will provide the support needed to prepare for either of these global certification tests.
Look for more information soon.
