Membership in the International Association of Online Business Manager is open to anyone who has completed an accredited Certified OBM® Training Program.

Certification As a member of the International Association of Online Business Managers you are eligible to pursue the designation of Certified OBM®, granted via our ‘Certification Week’ testing process offered 4 times a year.

Our Certification Week process is a rigorous one that challenges applicants with completion of real-life client situations, which are then evaluated by our Certification Committee.

Curious about the Certification Week experience? Here’s what some of our recent grads had to say:

“I don’t know about you guys but I felt that this exam week has taken my understanding of what it means to be an OBM to whole new level”  

“I honestly think I’ve become addicted to the feeling of Cert Week. That feeling of being challenged and the feeling of being super productive in a results oriented type of way, day in and day out. I. Want. More”  

“I am soooo incredibly grateful for the exposure I had this week and how much I have learned” 

Referrals As a Certified OBM® you get an exclusive listing in our online OBM Directory, that includes a full page member profile that can be updated at any time. This Directory is our ‘one-stop-shop’ for business owners looking to hire the services of a Certified OBM.
