Here are some key facts

  • The course learning should take a minimum of two days to complete.  There are a total of 10 modules plus an introduction to complete.  It is highly recommended you study the modules in the course in a sequential manner.  However, having studied any particular module, you can revist this section again as a recap as well
  • If you choose to explore the many resources, the successful pilot of the course found on average, students were spending up to three days in total on the platform
  • Detail about obtaining a certificate of completion is provided at the end of the course but you will also receive an e mail with the document attached.  This is given for 15 hours of learning, but of course you can also write a self reflection which is of far greater value than simply a certificate
  • You will be provided with access to the course for one month after enrolment (31 days in total) – therefore please only sign up at a time when you can plan out protected time for the learning
  • Extensions cannot be given except in exceptional circumstances
  • Within the course there is an e mail option to contact me if you have any problems

  • Evaluation of of the pilot course rated the experience by everyone as 5 star and some comments can be found here
