Information easily accessed. Interesting online links.

I very much enjoyed completing the course and I did not realize the detail that was involved in the industry. The detail within the course material was very well explained and especially the training videos. It was my first time doing a distant learning course and I think I did not use the facility correctly as I did not correspond with my tutor much, when I got stuck I just researched the manuals as I knew all the answered were in the manuals and videos. I was very happy with all aspect of the course and the materials provided. I felt the webpage, manuals, training videos and quizzes we very user friendly and easy to understand which was a great help when completing the assignments.

Quality course prospectus. Ticked a lot of boxes that interested me. Very much enjoyed the course. Look forward to taking on another challenge after I receive results.

It really opened my eyes to what is out there, instead of working for a hotel. I want to further my education, and consider my next step. I really found it extremely useful for me, and it made me realise there is so much out there!

I think that the course was good, the content covered a lot without being overwhelming, my tutor was very helpful.

I enjoyed the course very much and found my tutor excellent.

by Student March 2017 on Mar 20 2017 11:23

I decided on this course because of my love and interest in organising events, especially weddings. I love seeing all the hard work and organisation coming together at the actual event and how happy it makes people.

I had an interest in a course of this style but have a full time job which I could not leave in order to pursue it. This course allowed me use my job as part of the assessments which was brilliant and thought it would be a great way of getting the qualification along with the experience. I really enjoyed this course, and I'm lucky that I had a lot of experience with online style courses having completed my masters in this format also. My tutor Orlagh was super and very helpful and patient with any questions or queries I had. I asked for an extension on the final section of my course and the college were very prompt in their decision making process. I felt very supported by the staff members and again my tutor and would recommend the course going forward.

It gave me a chance to learn more about event management while being at university. Since it was online, I could do it anytime and anywhere I was, making it easier to complete assessments. I enjoyed doing the course as it gave me an insight into event management.

Online study was big part of my decision as I work full time and on shift pattern. CMIT is one of not many offering event management course online which i was delighted to see, also read a lot of great feedback about it. Overall very happy with the course.

by Student September 2016 on Sep 20 2016 15:26

I chose to study with CMIT because it's easy accessible and I can do the course on my own time. Also I did a QQI Business Management course earlier in the year with CMIT and really enjoyed it and found it very beneficial.

by Student August 2016 on Aug 18 2016 10:10

I have done another course with CMIT, and I found it very rewarding, and beneficial to me in relation to my current role.

by Student August 2016 on Aug 10 2016 11:22

I previously did a Team Leadership course with CMIT, and found it suited perfectly with my home and work life. Course was very informative and tutor very helpful.

by Student August 2016 on Aug 10 2016 10:24

This course was just what I was looking for. Having a background in the event industry, I had the chance to learn new procedures, regulations, laws and so on in a very short time. The course wasn't boring at all. I even enjoyed writing my assessments.

by Student June 2016 on Jun 13 2016 10:11

This is the first online course I have ever done, I thought that the whole process was very well managed.

by Student June 2016 on Jun 8 2016 09:48

The course is really well structured and covers all contents related to the event management. Every content is well explained and I like the additional material available on the e-learning page. It is very easy to navigate and I might consider other courses for the future.
