CMI Level 5 qualifications are designed for current or aspiring mid-level managers. They're ideal if you report to a senior manager or business owner.

This course, the CMI Level 5 Certificate, is a shorter Level 5 course. It covers two modules, making it ideal if you want to hone in on your core management skills.

The CMI Level 5 Diploma is a more comprehensive course, allowing you to choose from a selection of nine modules and master a wider range of management skills.

CMI Level 7 qualifications are designed for senior managers and directors. They're ideal if you have responsibility for strategically leading an organisation.

You could study the comprehensive CMI Level 7 Diploma or this course, the shorter CMI Level 7 Certificate.

Bear in mind that only the CMI Level 5 Diploma or above will allow you to become a Chartered Manager; the CMI Level 5 Certificate won't qualify you.

We offer leadership and management qualifications from two world-class awarding bodies, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).

Both are highly prestigious, internationally recognised, and will give a huge boost to your skills and career – so how do you choose which one is right for you?

Firstly, it depends on where you are in your management career. We offer the following CMI and ILM qualifications:

If you’re a mid-level manager choosing between ILM and CMI, there are a few things to consider.

If you’re looking to become a Chartered Manager, then CMI is right for you. The CMI is the only professional body in the world that can bestow Chartered Manager status.

CMI qualifications are also ideal if you want to deep dive into professional leadership theory and practice. You’ll study fewer modules than on an ILM qualification, but you’ll cover each topic in greater depth.

CMI courses are highly strategic in focus, making them perfect if you want to develop your high-level strategic management knowledge.

ILM qualifications, on the other hand, are highly practical, focused on helping you apply your workforce management skills in real-life situations.

They’re great if you want to touch on a broader range of hands-on management topics, as the modules are shorter than CMI, allowing you to study more subjects in less depth.

Still not sure? Get in touch with our course advisors by email, phone, or online chat – we’ll be happy to help.

Right away! When you enrol, you’ll be able to log in to your course and get started within an hour.
