Earn credits toward CMP or SCMP certification

In addition to being a resource for lifelong learning, IABC Advance supports the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) certification program. If you are interested in applying to the Communication Management Professional (CMP) or Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) certification program, you may use completed IABC Advance courses to meet the minimum application requirements, as well as to prepare for the exam. Please note that completion of these courses does not guarantee successfully passing either certification exam.

If you are already a certified through GCCC, completing IABC Advance courses may earn you points toward the required annual maintenance of your certification. IABC applies standard measurements for awarding appropriate credits for completed courses.
