Social Media Training Course Structure – How We Train

The majority of the diploma can be studied online, but your choice of electives could mean you will need to attend one of our training centres to work through the course.

It’s a flexible course, so you work through it at your own pace, at times to suit you.

Our audio based modules are really easy to follow, but if you get stuck you’ll have the support of our friendly training team at the centres, or via email or phone.

At the end of each module, you’ll take a validation test to prove your ability in the area to recruiters, and will receive your famous Pitman Training certificate when you pass.


This course is available to be studied at our four Pitman Training Centres, or from home.

Your choice of electives may be an online course or require study in the centre – please visit our distance learning page for a full list of courses available to study from home, or talk to one of our Course Advisors.
