The CIM Level 4 Award in Digital Marketing is about appreciating the importance of the ever-evolving, dynamic digital landscape and developing the skills you need to excel in it.
It's ideal if you're working in a marketing assistant or support position and want to advance your career or specialise in digital. It's also perfect if you need key digital marketing skills for any role.
This online course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the UK's premier professional marketing association, so what you'll learn will be highly respected and sought after by employers.
This CIM Digital Marketing course will teach you about the challenges and opportunities you'll face, and give you the tools you need to support and enhance digital marketing activities in companies of any size. You'll also learn about the importance of effective digital monitoring and measurement techniques that enable organisations to improve the effectiveness of digital marketing.
Once you've completed this course, you could move on to study the CIM Level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing course. This Award forms one module of the full Certificate, so you'll already be part of the way there.
This course consists of the Digital Marketing module from the full CIM Level 4 Certificate.
You'll study three units, which are:
Unit 1 - The Digital Landscape
Unit 2 – Digital Toolkit
Unit 3 – Digital in Action
This course is perfect for you if you're working in a marketing support or assistant role and want to advance your career. It's also ideal if you're a professional marketer who wants to specialise in digital marketing, or a more general manager who requires digital marketing knowledge.

However your role involves digital marketing, this course will give you the skills you need to excel.
You could continue your education by completing the full CIM Level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing (Digital Marketing). The 15 credits credits you'll complete for this Award count towards the 30 credits you need for the Certificate, so you'll only need to complete an additional two modules to gain the more comprehensive qualification.
