Certified Marketing Specialist™ Designation
The Canadian Marketing Association has established an industry designation for marketing professionals - Certified Marketing Specialist™. To be awarded this designation, marketers need to successfully complete a total of five CMA Marketing Certificate courses.
Available online courses:
"The course material and supplementary readings have been very useful not only as learning material but as idea generators for me and others in my organization."
- Jane Bargout, Integrated Branding
"I never knew an online course could be so hands-on. Creating digital ads, writing a blog and seeing how a SEM bid process on keywords actually looks are just a few examples of how this course has provided value to my career."
- Zeeshan Ali, Digital Marketing
"I am confident that I can put together a cohesive and structured digital marketing campaign, with the tools that I've been given. There was a lot of great up-to-date course content. Taking the on-line course helped to make it fit into my hectic schedule."
- Matt Wade, Digital Marketing
"I found the content very practical and helpful. I can start using the things I learned right away."
- Jennifer Davey, Marketing Math
"This course was an excellent combination of theory and real-world marketing examples. I just completed my undergraduate degree in business and I was not exposed to this level of detail in direct marketing. Great job on delivery..."
- Adam Kostanowicz, Direct Marketing
