Free access to the Bloomberg certification course.  Free access to sign up for BMC via the web until Aug 15th. This means an unlimited number students can sign up to complete BMC in their own time via web access. From the sign up date they have 1 year to complete BMC. Bloomberg will be conducting an update to our Education website on Tuesday, 23rd June. The purpose of this update is to migrate away from the third-party system that hosts the BMC videos because they will start to host them internally. The goal is to create a more user friendly experience. You can see a quick demo (2 min) of the changes here:
