CMI Level 5 Qualifications - What is CMI Level 5? with Crescente

So, what is CMI level 5?  The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) offer management and leadership qualifications in a variety of shapes and sizes, making it tricky to know which qualification and subjects to choose.  As an approved CMI centre with 16 years of experience delivering accredited management and leadership courses, we’re used to helping people decide what’s right for them. Here’s our guide to CMI level 5 courses and qualifications.

What is level 5 equivalent to?

CMI Level 5 qualifications are equivalent to studying at an undergraduate level, this is similar to a first or second year of a degree. CMI qualifications are vocational which means they are equivalent to advanced skills training and professional education. If you’re not sure then just get in touch.

Do I need to have a degree?

No. Over the years we’ve worked with thousands of middle managers. Some of the best ones have started out as apprentices and worked their way up without ever achieving an academic qualification. You need to be able to write English to a good standard and present documents you’d be happy to put in front of an executive team.

Who should study at level 5?

CMI Level 5 qualifications are useful for those going into a management role or if you are already in a management role. This is the perfect option for Middle managers. Additionally, CMI Level 5 is useful if you’re a specialist manager, project manager and sales manager.
