Certified Advertising Specialist (CAS) is the promotional products industry's professional designation. It is acquired through a combined result of years active in the industry, completed courses, industry contributions, and a passing score on a comprehensive exam. Individuals with the CAS Certification are seen as industry leaders who have attained a higher standard of professionalism, knowledge and experience. CAS certification designates a commitment to both business excellence and continual professional growth. Having the CAS designation behind a name is a recognized and respected indicator of credibility by employers, colleagues, and clients alike. A relatively small percentage of professionals (about 4% of individuals within the promotional products industry) hold these certifications, and are known as the industry's innovators and leaders.
CAS has been recognized as a valid and reliable professional certification. First established in 1961 and continually updated in response to changes in the dynamic promotional products industry, certification is an enduring designation.
The CAS curriculum was designed with input from industry leaders in order to assist individuals in developing the full spectrum of professional skills and knowledge essential to success in the promotional products field. Educational programs are industry specific, practical and focused upon personal and business success.
