The FAMEE Foundation offers an in-depth
certification program for consultants who
work with entrepreneurs. The programs are
geared toward the not-for-profit environment,
but are open to any consultant who serves
The certification program is designed to
incorporate into the normal work of a business
consultant and not require excessive outside
study. However, the goal is to provide a
certification program with some "teeth"
in it - in other words, it is more than
a token piece of paper. Our goal is to provide
the preeminent standard for small business
marketing consultant certification.
The program is also designed so the consultant
can advance through the levels at their
own pace. Taking on this program - even
at a very slow pace - will build this concept
of progression into the consultant's approach.
The Certified Marketing Advisor program
has 5 levels of accomplishment:
* Certified Marketing Advisor In Training
* Certified Marketing Advisor I (CMA1)
* Certified Marketing Advisor II (CMA2)
* Certified Expert Marketing Advisor I (CEMA1)
* Certified Expert Marketing Advisor II
Advancement through the various levels will
be based on the following things:
* Participating in FAMEE consultant self-study
* Reading marketing books
* Tracking client consultation with the
* Writing articles / reports
* Advocacy projects
* A written test
The annual value of this consultant certification
program is valued at $195, but is included
at NO COST with your free FAMEE consultant

PLEASE NOTE: This is a SELF-STUDY program.
Click the link above to access the spreadsheets which guide you through this program. However, there is no phone or email support for this program (at this time...maybe later). Nor is there an official certificate of completion (at this time... maybe later.) At present, we have published a cool program to learn marketing consulting and a systematic approach for its completion. Do what we will suggest, and you will learn the process of marketing consulting. It is, however, not a formal program with detailed support. (Such a program would cost big bucks, and you can access all thes materials without any upfront cost.) Please respect that this is what the program is - and is not.
