What affects the cost of a CMI qualification?
There are a few elements that will affect the price of your CMI qualification, including:
The cost of CMI qualifications isn’t set in stone from provider to provider, which means that your course fees are partially dependent on who you choose to study your course with.
If you want to save money where you can, it’s essential to do your research before deciding on a provider so that you know you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
How you study
CMI training courses are offered both online and in the classroom and choosing the classroom learning route means that you’ll be studying your course with other learners under the guidance of a tutor at a CMI centre.
While many people enjoy the face-to-face interaction that comes with in-person classes, it’s important to consider not only how much money it will cost you, but how much time it will cost you as well. You’ll need to factor in your commute, as well as the cost of your course materials (which we all know can add up quickly).
Online learning, however, will give you the flexibility of studying at your own pace, and many online CMI providers (like us!) offer low, interest-free payment plans - a convenient bonus if you’re on a tight budget.
If you decide that online learning is for you, you’ll have full access to your tutor, course materials, and an abundance of helpful resources - all online. You also won’t need to worry about the cost of your commute as you can learn from the comfort of your own home - saving you money where it counts.
The type of qualification
The cost of your course will vary depending on the type of qualification you choose to study and how advanced that qualification is.
CMI offers seven qualification levels, Level 2 through Level 8, with Level 2 being designed for team leaders and the most advanced Level 7 and 8 qualifications being aimed at senior leaders and CEOs.
At each level, you’ll have a choice of studying a Diploma, Certificate, or Award:
- Diplomas are the most comprehensive and sought-after CMI qualifications, teaching you the wide-ranging skills you need to become an effective leader and manager.
- Certificates are shorter qualifications that cover the crucial units from the Diploma, focusing on developing your core management skills.
- Awards are bite-sized courses that cover only one unit from the Diploma, allowing you to focus on a particular area and skillset to develop as a leader.
