We are currently experiencing problems with taking online payments. We would recommend that you select the invoice to organisation option. This will generate an invoice to your organisation within 7 days. The invoice can be paid by BACS, however if you prefer to pay by credit card, please call 024 7685 1700.

We offer qualifications that you can study online or with CIH in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland - or we can create a tailored programme and deliver it in-house at your organisation.

What is blended learning?
Blended learning is a method of study which combines face-to-face learning days with online learning, so learners get the best of both worlds - the opportunity to interact, share knowledge and learn from other students and a tutor, and the ability to fit their learning around other commitments.

You can also find a centre if you’d prefer to study through an approved centre near you.
