I chose the Level 4 Construction Management Diploma as I was out for a complete change in career direction. I was extremely impressed with the course content and the support I received from BOLC was second to none.
I came to BOLC on the recommendation of a friend who already worked in the building trade. The course not only improved my knowledge in plenty of key areas, but gave me the confidence to chase bigger and better things.
