CIM are introducing a new level 3 qualification, the Foundation Certificate in Marketing, aimed at practising marketing professionals who want to gain practical skills and knowledge that will equip them for work in the modern marketing landscape.

The course will allow those who do not meet the strict criteria for the level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing to still gain a marketing qualification and if they want to, they will then be able to go on to study at level 4 and level 6.

The two main modules that make up the course will cover marketing principles and customer communication, two areas that make up the foundations of modern marketing.

The CIM qualification specification for the level 3 marketing course reads:

“The CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Marketing is replacing the CIM Level 3 Introductory Certificate in Marketing.

The aim of the CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Marketing is to provide the practising marketer with relevant, contemporary marketing content to equip them for the current global landscape. Learning is brought to life through meaningful and active assessment methods which embrace the modern marketing industry. Successful completion of the CIM Level 3 Foundation Certificate in Marketing will equip the student with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to perform in a support level role and to carry out an essential and successful professional marketing role within the workplace.

Those who successfully achieve this qualification will be able to understand the wider role of marketing and how their practical skills can be applied to their career progression within the marketing profession.”
