This is the second time this course will be offered, there’s high demand and limited space. I was both a coordinator and participant for the first offering of the course this past spring; having Nancy Lee as our instructor was fantastic and you won’t want to miss out! 

From the iSMA website:

"Fast forward your career in Social Marketing by earning online a Social Marketing Professional Certificate of Completion for the International Social Marketing Association’s Introduction to Social Marketing Course 2020.

This 12-week course, which begins September 28, 2020, and ends December 18, 2020, provides an in-depth model and planning framework for developing a strategic social marketing plan to improve public health, prevent injuries, protect the environment, engage communities or enhance financial well-being.

Course Format: Each week, you will read 1-2 Chapters in the assigned text, review (on your time) a narrated PowerPoint that offers an in-depth discussion of the assigned chapters, and a detailed description of the assigned Step in the 10 Step Planning Model to be completed that week. Once drafted, you will send a word document to the instructor who will provide feedback on your draft step. Upon final approval of your social marketing plan, you will receive a Professional Certificate of Completion from iSMA.
