What Our Students Say

In terms of accessibility and flexibility this CIPD hr course was great as I live outside Dublin and it allowed me to obtain a formal and recognised CIPD qualification without taking up all my evenings. Attending online classes one night a week with CMI was perfect for me. Teachers were good and CIPD online course work was fine. A good experience overall.
