ILM is an internationally recognised management-awarding body whose qualifications align with the UK’s Qualifications & Credit Framework (QCF) and are accredited by the Office of Qualifications & Examinations Regulation (OfQual)

Levels of Certification

ILM qualifications range from Level 2 to 7. Elite Training delivers Levels 2, 3 & 5
