Why get certified?

As a business communicator, professional certification can elevate your career and help keep your skills fresh and applicable. It provides a great opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and expertise. And it could help you land your next big opportunity or perform at a higher level in your current role. 

At IABC Victoria, we fully support our members to attain this goal by holding local certification exams.

The Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) is a part of IABC and offers two levels of certification.

Communication Management Professional (CMP) — For generalist, specialist and other business communication professionals established in their careers as managers and looking to demonstrate their competence.

Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) — For highly skilled business communication professionals practiced in providing strategic communication advice and counselling to an organisation’s leadership.

Certification is a third-party, quality assurance that you are able to perform a job or role at a specific level. In this case, as a generalist, specialist, or highly skilled leader.

Are you ready to take your career to the next level?

Find out more about GCCC certification by visiting the Global Communication Certification Council website.

Certification examinations are held each year. For this year’s dates or to make an enquiry about certification, please email our Recognition Chair, Amy Gibbs at recognition@iabcvic.com.au
