Really enjoyed the course and found my tutor to be very helpful.

The course content appealed to me when I was reading through the Business course in the prospectus. It sounded interesting and mentioned key topics I was hoping to study. The administrators were also helpful, and always quick at sending you information, which was a nice introduction to studying with CMIT. The video in the initial information emails was also a good indicator to what the course would be like - in terms of how you can carry out the course in your own time. I am really enjoying my course. The quizzes are really helpful.

I needed the flexibility of an online FETAC Certified course to fit in with a busy work life. The course is available through an easy to navigate e-learning portal and Tutors are quick to respond to queries. The short format of the courses will enable me to complete a lot more certifications should i need them. I am surprised at how relevant the course is for my day job, and also contains interesting industry facts

Excellent course. Very good course content. Wide ranging yet specific. Exactly what I was looking for, for my first course. Tutors are brilliant. They are extremely helpful, no question is too stupid, and their prompt in their responses. I can't say enough good things about them.
