CMM230 Ethics for Re-certification

Share |

Integrity is the number one quality employers and clients value. During this interactive course, a variety of scenarios that demonstrate the official rules of conduct for community managers will be discussed. Participants will review CACM’s Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Practice and gain an understanding of ethics complaints, disciplinary actions, and the appeals procedures. All of the same type of elements that appear in the classroom-based course, but developed with your busy schedule in mind—you can complete the course in one sitting…or in many.

Please Note: Change on the horizon. CACM is raising the level of professionalism.

Certified manager members are no longer required to take basic Ethics twice. As of May 1, 2018, the Ethics for Community Managers CMM130 (live course) that you originally took in order to become certified is no longer an option in order to recertify. It may only be taken by those becoming certified for the first time.

You have two Ethics options to recertify:

  1. Advanced Ethics: Leadership & Decision Making LDR500 ($149) - Live course & no exam
  2. Online Ethics for Recertification CMM230 ($169) - Online course & requires the online exam to be taken within 14 days of registration date.



Community managers can reach new heights with CACM's certification programs.
