The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme.  This means that Kendal Publishing Ltd has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria.  The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future.  The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector.  To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.  The course itself has been designed by Kendal Publishing Ltd to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements.   ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met.  A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Very useful and well worth doing.

I choose CMIT as I wanted to find out how i could successfully run my own business and the above course I choose was the most suitable one for me. So far the course has given me a great insight into basic business principles. The course format is easy to understand.

I liked the idea of on-line education as it eliminates travel and time costs, plus the qualifications you can achieve are widely recognised. The course opened up areas for me in areas that I didn't know much about apart from the basics.

by Student August 2016 on Aug 10 2016 10:36

This course is strong in detail and well explained.

by Student July 2016 on Jul 20 2016 10:51

I found the course highly interesting and highlighted a lot of situations that could go wrong in opening a business.

by Student July 2016 on Jul 18 2016 14:16

Even with no back ground in business finance, i found the course manual covered the topic straight toward reading, once i had some jargon learned it got easier, but the tasks were achievable without rhyming off finance jargon but gives me understanding now of this area of business. Strongly recommend well presented by CMIT.

A professional institute and a handy way to study. Keep up the good work!

by Student May 2016 on May 17 2016 09:08

It seemed like a professional institute and being able to do it from home was very handy. I am considering doing more courses through CMIT in the future. Keep up the good work!

I have previously studied with CMIT and found it to be very rewarding. This will be my second course with CMIT and I would be more than happy to persue more courses.

by Student January 2015 on Feb 13 2015 12:14

I chose CMIT mainly for the convenience of studying at home and also because I liked the content of the course. I researched several courses before choosing the one I did and CMIT's seemed to be the best available.

by Student August 2014 on Sep 2 2014 11:13

I loved doing the course & found it very interesting. I would hope to do more courses in the future with CMIT.
