CQI, Chartered Quality Institute





CQI Chartered Quality Institute is the chartered body for quality management professionals. Established in 1919, they gained a Royal Charter in 2006 and became the CQI shortly afterwards. The philosophy that came with the new name was simple... 'through innovation and care we create quality'.


The new CQI qualifications allow quality professionals to gain recognition through the achievement of role-related qualifications that not only provide a ladder to becoming chartered, but are recognised by employers and based on the CQI Body of Quality Knowledge.


CMI currently offers the CQI Diploma in Quality Management which is recognised by Ofqual at level 5 which is broadly equivalent to level 7 in Ireland.
