Whats the main difference between the level 5 & Level 6 diplomas?

Basically the CIM level 6 assumes you know how to use digital marketing channels and focuses on more of the customer journey, digital strategy and planning and is assessed by assignment whereas the DMI Diploma Level 5 is aimed at actually teaching you how to run a PPC campaign, what SEO is and how to optimise your site etc – So this is ideal for those who need digital marketing channel training and learning about the best strategies and you are assessed through an online multiple choice exam.
