What Our Students Say About Us

I found the post graduate diploma in health and safety course offered by CMI Ireland by chance. I have a degree in IT and wanted to do something different which would involve meeting more people. What most appeals to me is that doing this one year post graduate diploma in health and safety allows me to progress to do a one year level 9 Masters degree in Health and Safety with a linked university. A friend had finished a Higher diploma in Occupational health and safety with CMI and highly recommended to look at this course.

This higher diploma in health and safety is really my next step as I completed a lower level health and safety qualification with CMI this year. I find studying at CMI really worthwhile and convenient as classes are recorded for playback when I sometimes can’t attend. I'm really excited about doing this post graduate diploma in health and safety online from Dublin, Ireland.

I had looked at various master degrees in health and safety but found they took at least 2 or 3 years. What most appeals to me is that this higher diploma in health and safety course allows me to obtain a level 9 health and safety diploma in one year. It gives me the opportunity later to do a one year Masters degree in health and safety.
