CIT programs cater for full or part-time students as well as people in either full-time or part-time employment. Some courses can be studied online or at an individual pace via one of the flexible learning centres. CIT classes are small, the average size being 20 students.

Programs are run only if there are enough students and resources. Each program has its own entry requirements. Selection criteria and/or selection processes apply to many high demand programs.
