With more than 750,000 members, IMA is one of the fastest growing professional organizations in the world and encompasses a wide spectrum of educated professionals in business ownership, senior management, sales, marketing, programming, creative development and related fields.

"One of the critical aspects of a thriving industry is an educated workforce," stated IMA Founder and Chairman Sinan Kanatsiz.  "The IMA takes this responsibility very seriously and has invested in this certification program to provide unparalleled Internet marketing education directly to our members."

The $499 course, scheduled to debut on Oct. 1 is open to IMA members as well as non-members and will generate the equivalent of 1.5 continuing education units based on the 15-plus hours of course content and participation.

The certification course is divided into six lesson areas, culminating in a final exam to certify Internet marketing knowledge, including:

  • Data-Driven Marketing: Creating a culture and decision-making practices based on data, developing closed-loop marketing strategies and programs

Participants will learn from experienced Internet marketing practitioners.  These practitioners draw from decades of combined Internet marketing experience at pioneering companies such as Microsoft, Omniture, Adobe, Foresee, Ancestry.com and others.  The roster of instructors includes both senior marketing leaders as well as a published author on web analytics who share their expertise to provide program participants with highly sought-after information delivered with the ease and convenience of an online learning platform.
