The DMAT provides an objective assessment to screen potential digital hires in an effort to reduce the risk of hiring the wrong person. Candidates who pass the assessment earn a verifiable certificate of their digital marketing expertise.

About the Global Academic Council

The Global Academic Council consists of seven leading academics from South Africa, Portugal, the USA, the UAE, Lithuania, and Croatia. The role of the council is to establish a fair assessment, which in turn ensures the validity of it. This is done through quarterly reviews and the adjustment of questions where necessary to ensure defined outcomes are achieved.

Rob Stokes, chairman of the DMAT, said, “The council is a crucial step in creating global credibility and ensuring the continuous enhancement of the assessment.” President of the DMAT, Steven Fine, expressed that bringing the academics together was not a simple task, but brought DMAT closer to achieving their overall mission of making digital education more accessible.
