Get Your Skills Recognised.


Our experience of providing accreditation for the Armed Forces training and development programme is extensive. CMI qualifications in management and leadership and/or coaching and mentoring are the “qualification of choice” for many in the Armed Forces. Its unique status means a CMI qualification is recognised as the gold standard by civilian employers both in the UK and overseas.

We provide the opportunity for Armed Forces personnel to register for qualifications that are accredited directly to career development courses and some coaching and mentoring courses. Our qualifications are a great way of evidencing your command and leadership skills throughout your career progression in the Armed Forces as well as benchmarking the practical application of your skills against civilian management requirements enhancing your employability and boosting your earning potential.

By taking a CMI qualification you’ll also receive a year’s free membership and access to extensive online professional and career development tools, together with our magazine Professional Manager, networking and mentoring opportunities and the opportunity to achieve the coveted Chartered Manager award.
