Step 1: Course access – 1 Month:

Milestone and performance driven skill set development in a highly practical environment. Here the CEP student is given the opportunity to work on practical assignments for the next 4 months to gain hands-on practical knowledge managing IIEC’s digital programs for better understanding of various social and search channels to become efficient with the technologies, the assignments are fun and entertaining yet challenging for some as it is a performance-based task. In the 16 week assignment we expect the student to achieve milestones and desired results.

Step 3: Internship – 6 Months:

Once the student has successfully learnt the practical skills during the assignment then he is given the opportunity to access the 6 month performance based paid internship program where the student earns upto Rs.10,000 per month as stipend. Every CEP student works on E-Commerce product campaign management and the student’s primary task is to generate traffic leads and sales of an e-commerce product which can either be a physical good or a digital goods.

The job assurance terms are simple to understand as given below.

For example, if the CEP student achieves the results then IIEC takes responsibility to provide them a job assurance based on the salary slab agreed between IIEC and Startup. For instance an IIEC’s incubated E-Commerce startup which is based in the USA in the clothing niche, they want to hire a Certified E-Commerce Professional who can generate x number of organic traffic, leads and sales in a defined timeframe. Here the value x is subjective and the expectations by the startup is set up based on the historical data and analytics that digital marketers can achieve organically for an e-commerce campaign based on the current industry trends.

Assurance Terms

In certain conditions if a student is unable to achieve results even after completion of the 11 month program in that case IIEC do not guarantee a job due to the students performance issue and any claims over the program’s expected results will be disclaimed. By joining the IIEC’s CEP program under the job assurance the student agrees that just by joining IIEC’s CEP certification program the student will not be hired for a full-time job since it purely depends on CEP student’s performance, knowledge, skills and efforts.
