Professional certifications give you the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and expertise, and provide evidence of your outstanding abilities. They engage you in a process of life-long learning that elevates your career and provides a structure for keeping your skills fresh and applicable.

A new certification program was recently launched by IABC International. This certification program follows the Global Standard of six essential guiding principles for the communication profession developed by IABC.

The first certification developed by the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) is the Communication Management Professional, aimed at the generalist/specialist level, a mid-level stage in the communication professional’s development. The Communication Management Professional certification is now available, with other levels to follow.
