Built on Past Certification Success

In 2012, we launched the IAB Digital Media Sales Certification and within its first year the program attracted more than 1,400 individual participants from over 200 companies across the industry. Based on this success, we strategically focused on the role of Ad Operations as the next opportunity for a Certification program.

IAB and the Commission on Certification acknowledged the unique job function of Advertising Operations professionals, and thus created this program to ensure an applicant’s baseline knowledge is on par with the needs of a growing industry.
