To make sure you have fully absorbed all the materials, you will undertake a short online test at the end of each unit, before you move onto the following section. There is no set pass rate for each individual test; you simply need to achieve an average of 75% across all the course units. After completing the sixth unit, you then submit a written summative task that will be marked by an online tutor. Once all sections of the course are completed satisfactorily you will receive your course certificate.
In the interests of flexibility we do not impose a strict timetable for this course. You can choose exactly how and when you study, as long as you are able to complete all the units within a six month period.
