New communication professional certifications available through IABC International 


  • Why become certified?


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.


  • The launch of a new series of certifications


With the aim of developing a new series of professional certifications for the communication professional, the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC), a team of communication professionals assembled by IABC’s international executive board (IEB), has taken steps to launch a new certification program in 2015. The Communication Management Professional certification is now available, with other levels to follow.


  • Honoring the past and looking to the future


While honoring the history and understanding gained from the ABC (Accredited Business Communicator) program, this new series of certifications will be developed to be in keeping with ISO (17024), an international standard for professional certifications. Many ABCs were involved in guiding the vision for this new program and ABC designees continue to be instrumental in its development.
