RALEIGH, N.C. - April 29, 2015 - PRLog -- A popular offering returns to NC State’s Technology Training Solutions (TTS) Summer schedule of classes at McKimmon Conference and Training Center in Raleigh. The 14-week Certificate of Social Media Management course begins May 11th, taught by Martin Brossman and Karen Tiede.

More than 100 participants have completed this program to date. Many have translated their certification into job advancement or freelance marketing applications
The Social Media Management program focuses on concepts, techniques and tools to develop and manage effective social media programs, exploring strategy, voice, policy and vital elements of a business approach to social media marketing.

Co-instructor Martin Brossman said, “The Social Media Management certificate program is not about how to use Facebook and other social platforms. It is about how to manage Facebook and other social media platforms when you are getting paid to do it, understanding liability risks and developing social media policies."

A recent graduate expressed the core value of the training: “It’s almost like it’s the new MBA. Consider it as social listening, with the benefit of targeted marketing.”

Registration is available on the TTS website or via phone at 919-515-8163. Afternoon or evening programs are available.
