Study Formats

This course is offered as distance online learning with the support of a mentor. You can study at a time and place that is suitable for you, making the course more accessible.

Studying will take place within our Online Learning Environment. The information is taught via a series of video presentations to replicate the classroom experience. Interactive activities and quizzes are used to check on your learning progress as you move through the units. The online learning environment is compatible with all modern devices.

You will have a personal mentor who will get in contact with you and they are there for support and guidance throughout the course.

Length of Course

It is recommended that this course will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete. This is based on 2-3 hours of learning per day. If you are able to complete more training each day then you may be able to complete it faster; equally, if you are not able to commit 2-3 hours a day then it may take slightly longer. You are also required to submit a worksheet and case study so time to complete these should also be taken into account. A timescale will be discussed between you and your mentor to help give you an idea of course duration.
