We are excited to announce that the AAA School of Advertising has partnered with The Marketing Association of South Africa (MASA) and is now offering the Associate Marketer SA professional designated certificate status at no cost to our alumni students (2020 and onwards) for a year. This is a great opportunity for one to become a professional marketer and promote their career prospects while adding status and prestige to the profession of marketing.
The Associate Marketer SA designation is becoming increasingly important, as many companies now require their senior marketing management to have a designation. Recruiters and employers find it helpful to know upfront at which level the marketer’s expertise is benchmarked compared to the current industry standard. The designation process further allows the marketer to do a full-scale gap analysis of their skill set and identify areas in which they can benefit from further experience and exposure. A well-rounded marketer is aware of their current strengths and weaknesses.
As a designated marketer, you can enjoy many benefits, such as access to and discounts for various events, networking breakfasts, and meetings, where marketers can share knowledge and insight from every corner of the industry. Additionally, all designated marketers are loaded onto the National Register of Associate Marketers, Marketing Practitioners, and Chartered Marketers, which is verifiable through SAQA, by whom MASA is accredited.
We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and become a designated marketer. Through this partnership AAA seeks to continue on the journey of producing the best talent within the Marketing and Communication space that will contribute to the industry with relevant skills.
