Become a Certified Mailpiece Design Consultant!
Who Should Attend?
Obtaining certification in understanding and designing mail for automation is essential for mailers to get their mail accepted, receive Postal discounts and speed mail delivery for themselves and their customers. PGAMA will be providing a one-day interactive classroom program with an open book exam for certification as a Mailpiece Design Consultant (MDC).
This MDC certification is offered in partnership with the Mail Systems Management Association (MSMA), a national organization contributing to the advancement of the mailing industry through education. It has 23 local chapters and over 2,000 members nationally. The coveted MDC certification provides recognition that the individual has achieved the highest level of education and understanding in mailpiece design. Upon a successful passing grade, they receive a certificate of achievement and their name appears in the MSMA National Directory of MDCs. The MDC designation will tell your colleagues and customers of your proven education and achievement as a Mailpiece Design Consultant.
