I’ve been working as a marketing assistant for just under a year now and couldn’t be happier with the position. BOLC’s Marketing Diploma certainly helped get me where I needed to be – thanks guys!
I took a BOLC Internet Marketing course to help me more effectively market my own business. I found the content of the course, the support I received and the value for money to be outstanding all-round.
