I have known about CMIT since it first started and have heard good reviews, so I thought it would be a good course to do.

I liked the distance learning element as i am based in a rural location. also due to personal commitments the way the course is laid out allowed me to be flexible with my study.

The Change Management course content was extremely interesting and useful for my purposes. The tasks required me to reflect on my current post and how practical changes could be made to improve efficiencies within my organisation, and how long-term planning and ongoing communication with key stakeholders are key to ensuring the success of any change management program.

Distance learning was fantastic as I'm living in a rural community. the accreditation with the correct organizations was also important. Happy with the course covered a large variety of topics.

CMIT is an easy way to learn and work at your own pace. Great online help from course tutor also. I found the course interesting and I gained a lot of knowledge from it which I can apply in my current role. No improvements needed in my opinion. Highly recommend it to others.

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.
