Our virtual courses give you all the benefits and interactivity of classroom learning, but from the comfort of your own home.
This course guides you both the Foundation and Practitioner elements of the Managing Benefits qualification helping you to fully prepare for both examinations . The Foundation level aims to measure whether you have understood the benefits management principles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities and documents.
