INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Splash Media U has selected LearnScale Solutions to market and distribute online social media certificates that focus on top social outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and various blogging platforms as well as an all-encompassing Master Social Media Certification program, which is designed for businesses that want to ensure employees have the skills necessary to run social campaigns and for individuals who want to prove mastery of social media marketing.
Demand for qualified social media marketers continues to increase year after year, but a lack of training programs means companies are often forced to gamble when making hiring decisions. Splash Media U has developed the only certification program that uses actual social media experts as instructors, giving its students real-world application of social media marketing practices using more than 530 lessons.
"Companies of all sizes need help in determining if an individual is qualified to assist them in their social media marketing initiatives," said Paul Slack, President of Splash Media U. "Our certification program is designed to help employers train highly skilled social media marketing employees by offering a credential from a professional program. We are pleased to announce our partnership with LearnScale to help bring this product to a nationwide market."
In this strategic partnership, LearnScale will bring the online certificates to target audiences nationwide, provide ongoing marketing campaigns, and use its professional distribution network to ensure that enrollment goals are met. Splash Media U will continue to focus on developing and delivering exceptional training courses in social media marketing. The Master Social Media Certification program, as well as other social media training courses, will be available on January 14, 2013.
