We now have hundreds of IPVM Certified Professionals, who have successfully completed courses in Access Control, IP Cameras or Video Surveillance.
I am looking at ways to better promote / showcase those people and the certification itself.
It's certainly a benefit for those people and I see increasing the recognition / awareness of our certification as a key driver for IPVM as a business.
Right now, all we have a is page of Certified People with their names, locations and LinkedIn URLs. Periodically, we promote it in course descriptions and emails. That's about it. Obviously we can do more.
- Run online ads that link back to a directory of Certified people, giving more exposure both to the offering and to the people.
- Create badges that Certified people can display on their own sites.
- Improve the Certified directory, perhaps making it searchable / sortable / displayed on a map so one can find Certified people in their area.
- More prominent showcase on IPVM homepage to make it easier for visitors to find.
What do you think? Anyone with ideas are welcome. Especially interested to hear from those who are Certified as well.
