Do students get certificates upon completion?

For now, BLA is unaccredited internationally so we don't give certificates. For a long time in trainings, the focus has been on certifications rather than the practicality of knowledge. We would rather focus on helping you get results.

Think of your certificate as the growth you achieve in your business. But if you require a paper certificate, BLA is not for you.

You have access to the materials for the duration of one year
