About CMI

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is the only chartered professional body in the World dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.  It is therefore the only body authorised to award Chartered Manager status so that you will be recognised a  true professional within the management sector.  CMI is a registered charity and in that sense differs from other for profit UK awarding bodies.
 All the courses that we in the National Training Authority offer are accredited by the CMI who have over 50 years experience in creating management courses and who have in excess of 80,000 members Worldwide.
The CMI process requires candidates to demonstrate how they have developed as a manager and how they have applied their leadership and change management skills to achieve significant business impact.

And now a number of CMI awards have been aligned with the Irish National Framework of Qualifications and are therefore recognised as such by the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI)
