Do you want your CIPS studies to be like EasyJet’s speedy boarding?

I recently attended a conference in Milan and flew Easyjet from Manchester.  I was flying solo for work and feeling increasingly bitter towards everyone who was off on holiday getting into the spirit.

I had booked an aisle seat and paid extra to select my seat.  What I had failed to realise is that some people are obsessed with queuing for the plane over an hour before.  When it was time to board I stood in this now, very long, queue and waited.  The person next to me pointed out I had speedy boarding which I hadn’t realised so I was able to stroll past the long queue (and the people staring at me with daggers in their eyes!) to speedy boarding where I walked straight through and then onto the plane.

This got me thinking about our CIPS packages.  We offer our Diamond Package at CIPS Level 4, Level 5 Advanced Diploma and now Level 6 Professional Diploma.  Our Diamond Package is our premium product with live virtual lessons, as well as access to our virtual learning system and all the resources.  Our Ruby Package is offered at the CIPS level 3 Advanced Certificate through to CIPS Professional Diploma, and this is our virtual distance learning, self-paced without live lessons.

Essentially both packages get you to the finishing line, which is your MCIPS.  Diamond has a greater level of support, so like speedy boarding, you can get on the plane quicker and feel comfortable and get your holiday/training started.  Ruby may be slightly slower at your own pace, but at the end of the day, you still get on that same plane and end at the same destination.

It depends on your priorities and values.  If speed is your aim, or you want to feel more comfortable and have a greater level of support (just like on the plane booking an extra legroom seat with speedy boarding) then our Diamond package is for you.  If you like to do things at your own pace and are independent and self-disciplined enough, just like those people waiting patiently in the queue, then our Ruby package may be for you.

To help you decide we have created a quiz which will suggest levels and packages for you here
