Accelerate Your Career with a Communications Management Professional Certification

Communications professionals in Halifax now have an opportunity to boost their career with a globally recognized certification in Communications Management. IABC Maritime Canada will be hosting Communication Management Professional (CMP) certification exams for approved candidates on Saturday, September 25th in the NATIONAL Public Relations office in Halifax.

There are currently two levels of certification from which candidates can choose, based on experience:

Communication Management Professional

The CMP is intended for generalist, specialist and other business communicators established in their careers as managers and looking to demonstrate their competence.

Strategic Communication Management Professional

The SCMP is for highly skilled professionals practiced in providing strategic communication advice and counselling to an organization’s leadership.

Why get certified?

A professional certification demonstrates your expertise and knowledge. It provides measurement and qualification to your abilities as a communications professional. IABC membership is not required for certification.

A certification demonstrates your commitment to professional development and maintaining a skill set that is up to industry standards. It can also help elevate your career and establish credibility, while bolstering your skills and your confidence in them.
