A couple of quotes here to answer how a workforce with CMI qualifications can benefit an organistation:

Directly from CMI:
1. Winning performance
More effective managers and leaders create a better performing organisation. Training interventions from CMI helps them realise their full potential, rapidly transferring their learning to make a greater impact in the workplace and driving your business forward.
2. Winning business
Recognition, endorsement, qualifications, standards – if your organisation can demonstrate impeccable credentials in this respect, it gives you competitive advantage that could help clinch new business.
3. Winning ways
Managers with a CMI qualification effectively have a ‘license to practice.’ Their code of conduct and set of ethics – not to mention their professional skills – reflect on your corporate reputation. This professional excellence also helps you recruit and retain managers who can make a real contribution.

How long will it take?
Well how long is a piece of string!?This is a question often asked but in reality its different for each learners. However, to give you an idea, for level 3 qualifications we allow around 1-2 months for an award, a certificate would be 4-6 months and a diploma around 12 months but these aren’t set in stone. Some learners like to complete all the work and submit all at once and get through the qualification as quickly as possible while others like to take time to explore all options before submitting their work so really, it’s up to you.

For each level of CMI there is a guide to the total unit time but your mileage may vary. That information is in the overall CMI chart.

How does the marking work?
Once you are satisfied with your work it will be issued to CMI for formal marking, this can take up to 6 weeks per unit. The CMI marker will thoroughly review your work and you will receive a mark sheet. Either the work will PASS which means no further work is required, or you may receive a REFER. With a referral the marker will issue clear feedback on where you need to amend the work. Each unit is allowed a maximum of 3 referrals, which gives you ample opportunity to change the REFER into a PASS and we’re on hand to guide you through.
