Learners should first visit the LCMT to view the range of courses on offer. to decide on what subjects best suit the learner, he/she should:

  • Review the modules within the course, do they interest you? are they relevant to your chosen career path?
  • How the course is taught and assessed, do you have the motivation to study via distance learning? are you able to work independently?

It is important that learners do not try to extend themselves too far and too quickly so should ideally choose a path that comfortably moves on from their existing level of skills and experience.

You can simply choose your course and enrol online, via the LCMT course page. Alternatively you can call the LCMT Enrollments team on +44 (0) 20 70180221 and they will guide you through the Enrolment process.
