It seems all the more important to realistically assess one's own level of knowledge and, based on this, to compare the contents of the seminar: What use is a very good further training if I Basics miss?

However, anyone who dares to compare the training courses will fast see that not only the content is different, but that there is already a large number of special further training courses:

Social media continuing education in the niche

For example, the IST study institute relies on a special one Strategy. Here you will find next to a further education, which above all the needs of sports clubs and sports companies, another course that deals with the acquisition of new workers through the new media.
