Generally a CIM qualification will take anything from 6-18 months to complete but this can vary greatly.
The course length of a CIM qualification can be very different depending whether you study online or in person, and full or part time.
The length of time it takes to study a CIM qualification can also vary depending on which learning provider you study with and what level and type of CIM qualification.
The CIM offers Qualifications from Level 3- equivalent to 6 form or A-level study, all the way through to level 7, equivalent to a Master’s degree or post-graduate study.
A qualification at a higher level such as level 7, will inevitably probably have a slightly longer study time.
CIM qualifications can also often be studied as Awards, Certificates or Diplomas (these are just different forms a qualification can take). Awards typically take the least time to study (around 2-4 months as they cover less content in less detail, while a Certificate can take around 6-months to a year and a diploma, the most in-depth and comprehensive qualification can take anywhere from 12-18 months.
