Concise Training

Concise Training has been teaching businesses and individuals to use social media and digital marketing since 2009.

Unaccredited Courses

We first created our short unaccredited e-learning courses in 2012 - updating them every six months since. The courses have been taken by over 2,000 learners either through Concise Training directly or through our partners - Pitman Training Group, The Distance Learning Centre and Business Excellence International.

Purchasing a course directly from Concise Training has the added benefit of email support from the Concise Training team. Although the courses are kept as up to date as possible, the nature of the sector involves daily changes to the channels. Learners find the advantage of email support from the experts helps them put what they are learning into practice.

Once an unaccredited course is purchased, learners will be sent login details within 24 hours and have 12 months access to the course.

Accredited Qualifications

The MD of Concise Training, Mary Thomas, wrote the criteria and units for the Social Media and Digital Marketing qualifications for City & Guilds. Purchasing the City & Guilds qualifications from Concise Training means you get your learning from the 'horse's mouth'! Qualifications are available to learners worldwide and are taught using e-learning courses and webinars. Assessment is via practical, assignments in which you apply what you have learnt.

We are proud that we get to know learners on our qualifications and can offer advice and guidance on the businesses they are working with - or the situation they are in. It is not unusual for Mary to have an hour-long conversation with a learner about their business and use of social media /digital marketing while she is walking her dog!

All qualifications are available to purchase via a monthly payment plan to make it as easy as possible for learners to access.

Our Values

It is very important to us that our training is practical and relevant to our learners. We use many scenarios throughout our learning to illustrate the use of marketing theories and ways that social media / digital marketing can be applied. We aim to give real information that you can immediately apply and we have seen applied in businesses that we are working with every day. (Our sister company Concise Digital offers social media management and digital marketing for businesses).

We offer unlimited support as we want you to succeed - you should never be concerned about contacting us for help either in the use of social media / digital marketing, to query something you have learnt or to clarify a question in your assignment.

Customer service is equally important to us and we endeavour to answer your queries as soon as possible and do everything we can to ensure you.

I took the LinkedIn for Business course as part of my Digital Marketing Diploma. It was very comprehensive, in depth and practical. I gained much knowledge from it and was able to apply my learnings immediately!
I have completed this course as part of a Pitman qualification and found it interesting and informative. There is quite a bit of reading in some modules but it was all interesting and relevant and the course took exactly the quoted timescale to complete. I am not responsible for the social media where I work but now have the confidence to make s...

I enjoyed this course and did it as part of the city and guilds diploma in digital marketing. I wish I had have studied this course first.

I learned about some new concepts to me such as GPS technology and ho...
