Bloomberg must be used at the terminal; there is no remote access. You can recognize the terminal by its distinctive hardware: two monitors and a color-coded keyboard.
Bloomberg offers self-paced e-learning courses that are designed to boost your knowledge and strengthen your resume. Upon finishing each program, Bloomberg awards you a certificate of completion.
Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC), also known as Bloomberg Certification, is a self-paced e-learning course that provides a visual introduction to financial markets and the core functionality of the Bloomberg terminal. It takes ~8 hours to complete and progress is saved automatically. After finishing BMC, Bloomberg provides a "Certificate of Completion".
