Please note: *Qualifications achieved via CMI following the completion of the ICSC course will not attract the same OU credit values due to the nature of the delivery of these programmes. Learners interested in gaining credit for these should do so on the basis of the ICSC course they have completed rather than their CMI qualification.

More details can be found at www.open.ac.uk/credit-transfer

For information on eligibility for Standard Learning Credits (SLC) please see the relevant registration form.

All registration enquiries for courses completed prior to 2010

Courses completed prior to 2010 may still contribute towards a CMI qualification through bespoke programmes which can also be enhanced to achieve higher qualifications through further development. Costs will be agreed with the student dependant on additional work required.

These qualifications are still available once the window of opportunity has expired through a "time expired programme"; this bespoke programme can also be enhanced to achieve higher qualifications through further development. Costs will be agreed with the student dependent on additional work required.
