Mailchimp Academy Foundations Certification

We’re Officially Certified for Mailchimp Foundations

Tanker was the first Mailchimp expert directory listing in Australasia waaaay back in 2012.
Nine years later Team Tanks decided it was time to up our skills.
The Mailchimp Foundations Certification via the Mailchimp Academy provides a comprehensive—well, foundation—in Mailchimp’s all-in-one-Marketing Platform.
The whole team took all the courses, which are organised into journeys called Collect, Organise, Personalise, Market, and Optimise over about 10 hours. We passed all 6 assessments to become officially certified in Mailchimp.
Now we’re covered on all the freaky new functionality that’s going on to get our clients looking sharp and working smart.
