I did this course as I wanted to stay at home with my baby and study at the same time. It was a great experience and I recommend it. Could the course have been improved? No, it is perfect as it is.

The course surpassed my expectations. I was alarmed by some of the things I didn't know, or was unaware of, but now feel a far more confident and capable journalist having done the course. The tutorial support was excellent.

The course was exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to follow and I had constructive feedback on every lesson within two days max. The tutorial support was fantastic and friendly, and communication was excellent, with great feedback and quick responses.

Cleland was very responsive to my emails, every question I had was answered quickly and in full. The course covered so many different areas of editing in so many different forms.

The course has exceeded my expectations. It has provided me with the necessary tools to work as a proofreader in the most professional and effective way. The material is designed and presented in a very approachable way.

I had worked with a magazine before and realised I wanted to know more about the digital side of things. The course more than met my expectations. The tutorial support was good and the content was good, too, with plenty of detail.

I was working for a journalism website, but needed to gain the necessary certifications. I came to CMP and learned a lot from this course. I would recommend this course to anyone who is working in online media.

The notes were very detailed and covered everything I needed to know for basic proofreading, so I did not need any tutorial support. The course was well structured and I learned so much. It was worth every penny.

Great online learning institution! The course was very helpful. I learned a lot from it. Friendly learning atmosphere. The tutor was very accommodating and motivating.

This course definitely changed my life! Starting my own blog was a high moment in my career so far. It was selected by RCA to promote Beyoncé's new album! I exclusively released tracks and quotes from Beyoncé until her new album "4" was released.

It was an in-depth course, yet fairly easy to follow. It was also good to be able to work at my own pace, and I enjoyed the challenge. I found the course content varied and interesting. I would certainly recommend it!

I thoroughly enjoyed studying with CMP. It was a broad and thorough first taste of journalism for me. A great coverage of the styles and complexities which are involved in this industry. I am sure this will not be the only course I complete with CMP.

An essential course for anyone who wants to avoid the legal pitfalls of social media. An easy to follow, common sense style. Enrol now and don’t become the defendant.

An excellent course from CMP. A must if you're in public or private sector PR / comms. It will help you avoid all of the pitfalls.

I had worked with a magazine before I wanted to know more about the production side. The tutorial support was good and the content was detailed. I learned a huge amount about the work that goes in to producing a magazine.

The course provides thorough practical information on all the main topics and is enhanced by pertinent tutorial tips and advice that only an expert on the reality of it could give. I can’t see how there can be a better online course in the UK.

I have learned so much on this course, and really loved the content. It was easy to understand and very well explained. Communication with my tutor was excellent. I always received a prompt response.

It is quite clear that most of us are rather ignorant of the laws regarding our use of the internet. This course perfectly explains all you need to know in a language that is easy to understand.

I wanted to know media law basics to help me with my blog. The tutorial support was very helpful: CMP courses are of the best quality. The course content was straightforward. CMP have been very helpful to me and I will be doing more courses.

Excellent course. Not only did it improve my skills, but also gave me excellent points of reference, such as websites. Tutorial support was very quick and very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone.

I enrolled on the course to improve my writing structure, writing etiquette and grammar. The tutorial support was excellent. The feedback was first class, with praise and constructive feedback.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I managed to secure work before the end of the course. I am currently editing a book due to be published in the autumn. This is proof that the CMP proofreading and editing course yields great results!
