Other Training Options

Take a look at our other general training non-OMCP certification prep courses (e.g., youtube, KPI Analysis). These are great for professional development or general knowledge development.


Which course(s) should I take?

For a general broad overview, or if you are new to digital marketing, you should enroll in the Online Marketing Fundamentals course. All other courses are more specialized and should be taken given your specific training need. You can also take multiple/bundle courses at a discounted rate. Please take a look at our bundle options.

Is there a specific start date for each course?

No. You can enroll at anytime (except during school closings and holidays).

How long does each course take?

Courses can take 30-50 hours depending on the course (see table above). For individual courses, students have 4 months to complete each course, and 6 months when you bundle courses.

Is this course offered for college credit?

No. But students will be prepared to sit for the OMCP certification after successful completion of the course.

How will I actually receive the OMCP certification?

Our courses are designed to prepare you for the certification. After successful completion of the course, students will need to take and pass a proctored, paid online exam from OMCP. For more information or to register for the exam, please visit the OMCP Certification Exam page.

How valuable is certification?

Not everyone needs Certification. The real value is in learning new skills, and the opportunities that provides for improved results, and new prospects. But Certification is a way to prove that you’ve done that work, and honed those skills. Our Certifications are recognized by OMCP®, the industry leading certifying body. Only the very best training courses that meet their stringent requirements earn that honor.
