UMD Professional Ltd. is a leading provider of courses, designed specifically for dental practice managers and business managers, which lead to qualifications at three different levels, all accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM):

  • The Level 3 Certificate in First Line Management,
  • The Level 5 Diploma in Management,
  • The Level 7 Diploma in Executive Management, and
  • The Level 7 Award in Strategic Leadership

You can benefit from a choice of learning options, including workshop and extended modular programmes, to suit your personal circumstances as well as different payment options. All courses can be taken without the qualification element, and all provide verifiable CPD.


ILM Level 3 Certificate in First Line Management

This course is suitable for new managers and members of the dental team taking on management responsibilities for the first time, and explores key areas essential for a new manager. The course is available as a distance learning programme with an option to extend study by opting for a modular route which provides a building block approach to the qualification over a longer period of time.


ILM Level 5 Diploma in Management

This course is intended for existing practice managers wishing to extend their knowledge and skills in management. It is available as a workshop course involving monthly full day workshops held at a number of regional centres around the UK, or as a distance learning course. The qualification covers a comprehensive range of management skills and knowledge required by the professional practice manager. Managers who achieve the level 5 Diploma can also go on to achieve a BA Hons in Professional Studies with a partner university by undertaking a further year of study by distance learning .


ILM Level 7 Diploma in Executive Management

This post graduate level course is intended for senior practice managers and practice business managers seeking to extend their skills and knowledge in strategic management of their practices or dental businesses. It is available as a workshop-based course in London, and involves nine two day weekend workshops over eighteen months.


ILM Level 7 Award in Strategic Leadership

This innovative post graduate level course is intended for senior practice managers and practice business managers seeking to develop their leadership skills. It involves three weekend workshops over six months and can also be combined with the Diploma course described above to gain the ILM level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership and Executive Management.
