  • Is the course self-paced or scheduled?

    This is a self-paced course, providing you with flexibility (you progress at your own pace, when and wherever you are), immediate access (you have all course materials available to you all the time) with no set start or end time (as long as you complete the course before it expires).

  • How long do I have access to the course materials?

    You have access to this course, all of its materials and support for a whole year! However, if you wish to extend your enrolment then we can advise on the best course of action for you.

  • Do I receive a certificate upon completion?

    You will receive a course completion certificate once you have completed 100% of the course. This should generate automatically for you, but if not, then contact us directly and we can issue the certificate directly to you.

  • Is there any interaction with the instructor or other students?

    There are opportunities to discuss queries with your instructor both within the learning environment or via the on-line community where you can meet your fellow students. Don't forget to say "hi". You can ask your instructor a question on any technical aspect of the course, but for platform related queries or subscription questions, then contact our support team directly.
