An excellent course to build on leadership and management skills, putting theory into practice in the workplace with scenario style assignments. Tutors were extremely helpful, responding to queries promptly and providing advice as required. I would highly recommend this course to colleagues.

Great course over all. I enjoyed the course which challenged me in ways that led to great learning, tutors and staff are 100%, I am fully satisfied with the course and its material.

by Student January 2015 on Feb 27 2015 11:58

The course was really challenging, more so than I expected. I have completed other courses that I would have thought were at a similar level but this course was far more wide ranging and the assessments took much more thought and fine tuning.

by Student April 2014 on Feb 27 2015 11:57

I looked at CMIT primarily as I needed a self directed course. Due to the distance between my home and office and having a young family, attending a night course was not realistic. CMITs set up is excellent with everything you need. I really enjoyed this course and felt it was more challenging than I expected.
