AMI partners with ADMA to offer new online marketing training programs

Two associations strike an agreement that sees ADMA's new IQ training curriculum extended to AMI members

The Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) has partnered up with the Association for Data-Driven Marketing and Advertising (ADMA) to provide members with access to ADMA’s new-look series of online-based courses and certifications.

The AMI Online Training, powered by ADMA IQ, is a series of modular online courses featured as part of ADMA’s recently relaunched learning curriculum. The new-look training program followed a survey of 300 marketers that highlighted the need for more data-driven marketing skills across the industry.

The courses are being positioned as a way for professional marketers to fill knowledge gaps, expand their professional careers and to boost business growth and development.

AMI CEO, Lee Tonitto, said professionals can either opt in complete certificates in analytics, content marketing, digital marketing and marketing technology, or do modular coursework.

“Marketing, media and analytics are changing extremely quickly,” she said. “If marketing professionals want to harness the power of marketing and technology and deliver superior business outcomes, they need a smart and flexible library of marketing training options. AMI Online Training, powered by ADMA IQ strengthens industry qualifications and allows marketers to progress from knowing to truly understanding."

AMI said it will continue offering day and half-day classroom-led training and workshops covering both basic and advanced marketing skills. IQ is also being provided in addition to AMI’s other member training offerings including Fundamental Workshops, Master Workshops and the Thought Leadership Series.

ADMA CEO, Jodie Sangster, said the gap in skills across Australia’s marketing community is bigger than individual associations and sectors.

“Our partnership with AMI means that we will be able to extend the reach of our education offer to help ensure Australia has best-in-class marketers,” she said. “By working together on education, ADMA and AMI are stronger and can better serve the needs of marketers.”
