You likely already have a degree in communication or a related field, but are you also looking for something to help give you more of a competitive advantage while progressing in your current job position or looking for your next opportunity? Professional certification can help you take your career to the next level and prove your professional competence to your current or future employers and peers.
Making the decision to pursue professional certification is a career move—whether you’re looking to assert yourself as a candidate worthy of a promotion or if you’re seeking a brand new opportunity. Becoming a Communication Management Professional (CMP) or a Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) will help you:
- Reduce stress. Kick the uncertainty of whether or not you’re qualified in your current or next position and feel enhanced job security.
- Gain practical knowledge that will help you in your daily work challenges and help you to push your career forward.
- Feel acceptance from your employer and peers as a leader in the communication field.
So what’s holding you back from taking that first step? Take advantage of available resources, including a CMP practice test, a CMP Learning Path and a SCMP Learning Path as your prepare to sit for your exam and take a look at the exam schedule with more dates to come. If there isn’t an exam offered near you, consider reaching out to the IABC chapter in your area to host an exam.
