I liked the ideas of having a tutor to email and get a response from fairly quickly, the price of the course was also reasonable.

It was very accommodating time wise, even though I finished on time, there was the opportunity to apply for an extension. It has given me the foundation to continue if desired. I cannot fault this course.

I found the course very convenient for my social situation. I want to continue studying and improving my knowledge and I don't want my job schedule to be a problem for it. I loved the course, so useful and very well explained. It was a very easy and well explained course. In the whole course I only had one doubt about a subject which was very well explained later on.

Good reputation for online training. Very concise.

by Student April 2016 on Apr 1 2016 10:10

I chose to study with CMIT as it offered extensive courses in areas that I am interested in and also because it is online, as these course are not available near where I live/work and are not at accessible times.

I studied with CMIT twice before and found the experience enjoyable and worthwhile. The course was useful and enjoyable.
