Hootsuite Certified! SLMC Students Pass the Test

Hootsuite Certified! SLMC Students Pass the Test

Nineteen more PR professionals are now Hootsuite certified, thanks to Dr. Tia Tyree‘s collaboration with the Hootsuite Student Program, which provided students access to the platform’s courses and certification exam.

Tyree offered the course and certification exam as extra credit in her fall 2018 social media course.

“Taking the course and passing the exam is a tremendous effort and will benefit students in the future,” Tyree said. “This was all done on a voluntary basis, and I can’t be more proud [my students] took the initiative to do it.”

Those who passed the exam, including Nia Lane, Mara Peoples and Raegan Robinson, can now put the certification directly on their LinkedIn pages, use the Hootsuite banner on their resume and be placed in the company’s online database.

Tyree plans integrate the certification as a part of all her social media courses in the future.
