Marketing Principles and Practices
Pitman Training offers a range of marketing courses as it’s a core skill that’s often in demand – particularly if you’re looking for promotion, additional responsibility or to broaden your opportunities.
This course complements our ‘Marketing Mix’ course – here we offer an overview of this important discipline, as well as detail on core principles. This will help you become confident in understanding the real function and nature of marketing. You will also examine key practices and marketing techniques, such as how to analyse buyer behaviour.

Every Pitman Training centre also has Course Advisors, so there is always additional support on hand should you feel it necessary. The course comprises three core modules on the following subjects:

The course is highly practical in nature – it is packed with hints and tips to solve real-life work problems including quizzes to help reinforce your learning as you go. It also contains a ‘Marketing Audit’ module that allows you to analyse marketing activities in your organisation and apply you new knowledge in the workplace immediately.
What's more, our online system will help you track your progress and take you straight back to where you left off, as well as help build your motivation.
