Communications Management Professional (CMP) Certification

Council (GCCC®) has based its Communication Management Professional (CMP) certification program, including the continuing professional development requirement, on the Global Standard for communication professionals set forth by IABC.

Applying that standard enables the GCCC to cross all borders, align with diverse cultures, and effectively serve organizations of all types and sizes.

Certification is intended to support you throughout your career. The GCCC has identified roles, responsibilities and competencies for four broad career levels: Foundational, Communication Management Professional, Strategic Adviser, and Business Leader. At this time, only the Communication Management Professional certification is available.

The Global Standard℠ was developed by IABC through research and consultation with the wider profession and states that “communication professionals around the world embrace a shared career purpose and six core principles as the building blocks of their work.” Those principles are:

  • Ethics
  • Strategy
  • Analysis
  • Context
  • Engagement
  • Consistency
