The main difference between CMI and ILM courses is their content. The subject matter of the units, what they cover, the amount of study required and the value of each unit can all differ between CMI and ILM qualifications.
ILM courses require you to complete more units, because the units are more condensed, so you can complete them at a quicker pace. ILM qualifications may also be favoured by companies within the public sector – for example, hospitals or councils. On the other hand, CMI qualifications tend to be favoured by companies within the private sector, and have fewer units as the credit values are higher.
