It provides an overall outline of project management in general.

by Student May 2017 on May 26 2017 12:46

Highly recommended - especially if the next step in your career is project support. For me, the next step will be to be successful in a job application for a project support role and then study Prince2 Project Management.

I'm working full time and have 2 children and my husband works shift work so classroom learning doesn't suit me. I love the experience of online learning as I'm self motivated and eager to progress in my career and CMIT allows me to accomplish this goal

by Student February 2017 on Feb 17 2017 09:59

I liked the option of completing the course online as I do not have the time to attend an evening course. I was also very happy with the course structure and outline.

by Student February 2017 on Feb 13 2017 11:22

The course content is very interesting and easy to follow. I would recommend it to my colleagues. So far I am very happy with the course and don't have any recommendations on how to improve it.

It was very convenient to be able to work and study at the same time. The college also had good reviews online which further helped my decision. The cost of the course was also very reasonable. I really enjoyed the course, and I really felt I have learned a lot in the subject of project management.
