CMI has worked extensively with all areas of the Armed Forces for over two decades to deliver qualifications and accredited solutions to support individuals throughout their military careers and beyond.
Celebrating Armed Forces Day
CMI has an extensive relationship with the British Armed Forces, supporting military personnel to equip them with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to be successful managers and leaders.
That’s why we’re proud to be supporting Armed Forces Day 2021 by creating this #SaluteOurForces video to pay tribute to our Service personnel who work incredibly hard to keep us safe in the UK and across the globe.
Special Award of Recognition
In 2020, CMI launched the Special Award of Recognition - an opportunity for us to recognise and thank all of the incredible managers and leaders in public services, like the British Armed Forces, who continue to tirelessly contribute towards tackling the Coronavirus pandemic, often putting their own lives on the line to protect ours. If you want to nominate a deserving manager or leader for this award, simply forward the below link to them, where they can fill in their details and collect their certificate.
Translate your Armed Forces Experience into a Meaningful Qualification
The relationship between CMI and the Armed Forces has flourished over two decades, with CMI often recognised as the partner of choice for many military personnel. We offer the chance for members of the Armed Forces to have their learning recognised by an industry leading professional body, translating what they have learnt and helping them to demonstrate their skills in a meaningful and valuable way that employers understand.
I believe that others, particularly in the Navy, should strive for Chartered Manager status, as it will raise the profile of a very large cross-section of very capable managers inside the military.Lieutenant Commander Philip Parvin - Royal Navy
CMI Membership Benefits
As part of the fantastic partnership between the MOD and CMI, each learner will benefit from 12 months of free CMI Membership upon registration of a CMI qualification.

Find out more about what a CMI Membership has to offer.
The CMI Offer
Refreshed to give you even more choice, the CMI offer, which will start from 1st June 2021, means that learners now have two options for CMI certification:
CMI Certificate of Recognition
If your existing course meets the CMI Professional Standards - our international benchmark of excellence - you will be eligible to apply for a CMI Recognised certificate.
CMI Regulated Qualification
Undertaking a regulated qualification means you'll be eligible for Foundation Chartered Manager Status and receive a globally recognised qualification that employers desire.
If you have undertaken any of the qualifications listed below during your time in the Armed Forces since 2018, you will be eligible to apply for a CMI accredited qualification. If you require any support with this, get in touch with our expert team.
Our qualifications are a great way of evidencing your command and leadership skills throughout your career in the Armed Forces, and are also a great benchmark against civilian management requirements. Why not take a look at our range of courses below.
The Armed Forces Covenant
CMI is incredibly proud to be a significant partner to the military for many years in accrediting and developing skills, and have demonstrated our commitment by signing their Covenant. The Covenant exists to redress the disadvantages that the Armed Forces community may face in comparison to other citizens, and to recognise sacrifices made.
For over two decades, CMI has been helping military personnel not just improve performance in their role, but build confidence and carry qualifications to help them resettle into civilian life at the end of their military career. We are delighted to be able to extend this to Service spouses and partners to gain Management and Leadership qualifications to help support them to excel in their careers, too.
