The aim of the CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Marketing is to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and understanding to perform professionally in a support-level marketing role.
The course consists of two modules:
- Marketing Principles - assessed by online exam
- Customer Communications - assessed by written assignment
We bring learning to life through meaningful assessments which reflect the demands of the modern industry. As a result, you will develop a good understanding of the wider role of marketing and see how your practical skills can be applied to future career progression.
You can choose to start studying in September, January, or April as each module can be achieved as a distinct, self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full qualification.
Benefits of studying a CIM qualification include
- earning more
- more credibility with employers
- a blend of theoretical and practical study
- the opportunity to learn from experienced marketing professionals
- supported career development
