 CMI Level 3 in First Line Management and Leadership for EngTech

The IET has joined with The Chartered Management Institute to provide courses in Management and Leadership to its members. Following the success of the Fast Track Level 5 Diploma for our CEng and IEng members, we are pleased to announce the introduction of a Fast Track Level 3 Diploma in First Line Management, exclusively for EngTech professionals.

What are the Level 3 Qualifications in First Line Management?

The Level 3 qualifications in First Line Management are ideally suited to those who are new to management and for those who want to increase their understanding and abilities as their career progresses. In addition, achieving a qualification in First Line Management will not only boost performance, but will also enhance career prospect. It can be used as a springboard towards further management development as it is a route through to more advanced qualifications such as the Level 5 qualifications in Management and Leadership, the Level 7 qualification in strategic Management and Leadership and an MBA.

The Level 3 Diploma in First Line Management provides a broad-based, practical learning of important ideas, techniques and overall competencies that will improve effectiveness and performance. Everything you study is related to the management roles and responsibilities you exercise, and the elements of the programme ensure that you can immediately apply newly learned skills, knowledge and techniques in very practical ways.
