Certificates

IAM Certificates are an excellent opportunity for anyone wishing to learn either the fundamentals of business administration or advanced strategies in business management. If you do not have the time available to pursue a diploma qualification then the small, manageable method of learning offered by our certificates provide a great alternative. Due to their short length and large choice of topics, our certificates are also valuable for anyone wishing to top-up their expertise within a particular area of business administration or management. Our certificates are designed to be flexible, offering you a choice of subjects depending on your areas of interest and a variety of assessment methods depending on your preference and the level studied.

All of our certificates are accredited on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This enables you to combine the credits achieved from completed units, and use those credits to progress onto another qualification, either with the IAM or elsewhere.
