Really enjoyed this course, highly recommend it.

Very useful and provided me with more information to ensure that I can go into a leadership role with more confidence. Everything is self explanitory and easy to follow so can't improve on that.

I needed a means of obtaining a basic management qualification without having to attend classes due to work and family commitments. CMIT website had a good list of available courses. The discounted rate at the time of registration was also a factor. Accessible material and reasonable timeframe for completion of assignments.
