The CQI Level 5 Diploma

The CQI Level 5 Diploma in Quality Management

As of 31st December the CQI are no longer accepting new registrations for this qualification but all students who have already started may continue to completion. The Qualification is still Ofqaul registered and has the same value that it had before. Students can therefore still use it as entry to higher level qualifications such as Masters Degrees.

Because this career oportunity is no longer available to new students DHI have created a new qualification of our own which is explained elsewhere on this site. Any student who wishes to transfer to this qualification is at liberty to do so even if they have completed CQI Units via a different Education Centre

Most Students are mostly interested in the Chartered Quality Professional Qualification, the Level 5 Diploma D501 .  This consists of 9 units or topics. There are no specific entry requirements  but students are expected to take the work seriously and we are here to assist when the need arises.

In order to start on the CQI Diploma qualification, despite what you may read on other websites, you do NOT need to have completed the Level 3 Certificate (C301).

Units can be purchased individually or together.  There is a cost saving of 10% to purchase the whole course.
