While we have a range of existing courses we know from experience that programs work better when they have been customised to your needs.

Examples of customisation  include introducing case studies that are relevant to your sector, including examples from your business or integrating your processes and methodologies into our best practice structure.

Our ultimate goal is to offer flexible, practical solutions that build the capabilities of your marketers. From workshops to marketing academies, you’ll get the most current and relevant content tailored to you. The IDM training portfolio includes over 40 direct, digital, data and creative (copywriting) marketing courses and 11 marketing qualifications which you can mix and match, adding industry-specific case studies, templates, best practice examples, assessments, team projects and quizzes.

As the leading awarding body for qualifications in the direct and digital marketing profession, in-house training programmes can also be IDM-accredited, and therefore recognised and respected worldwide. Only the IDM can deliver IDM-accredited training.
