    OR
    Associates degree plus two years of experience as stated above

    In addition, a person convicted of a felony, any crime of moral turpitude or misdemeanor relating to honesty, theft, embezzlement, fraud or the like shall be ineligible to become an SMIA®. Applicant must provide a copy of the certified transcript of education ONLY if using a college degree rather than an experience to qualify. Applicant must successfully pass the prescribed criminal background check. Falsification or omission of information on the application form will be reason enough to disqualify an applicant from becoming or remaining a Certified Social Media Intelligence Analyst (SMIA).
