iCreate Institute has formed a partnership with the Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica (CCCJ) to offer digital marketing courses in eight community colleges across Jamaica.
The eMedia Interactive Group subsidiary will deliver its certified Digital Marketing Associate programme to the institutions, three of which are in the planning phase to implement.
Chief executive officer, Tyrone Wilson, said “This program is suitable for individuals who want to learn about one of the world’s fastest growing careers as well as those who are interested in entrepreneurship in digital marketing and social media.”
” We are really excited to be launching this fast growing discipline, digital marketing, with iCreate, and this will be done across our institutions.”– Executive Director of CCCJ, Dr Donna Powell-Wilson
Some 15,000 enrolled students across the community colleges will now have access to the programme, which is globally accredited by the Digital Marketing Institute in the United Kingdom.
The digital marketing courses offered by iCreate are globally accredited by the Digital Marketing Institute based in the UK. iCreate is the only licensed institution to offer these courses in the Caribbean.
For her part, Dr Donna Powell-Wilson, Executive Director of CCCJ said “The CCCJ welcomes the opportunity to provide quality, affordable education to all Jamaicans and to persons in the region. We are really excited to be launching this fast growing discipline, digital marketing, with iCreate, and this will be done across our institutions.”
The CCCJ is a statutory agency under the Ministry of Education, formed by an Act of Parliament, which was passed in December 2001, to supervise and coordinate the work of Community Colleges in Jamaica.
iCreate, listed on the Junior Market of the Jamaica Stock Exchange, successfully raised J$24 million last month in an effort to grown its business and pay down on liabilities, which stood at $37 million at the end of 2019.
