How it works

  1. Learn
  2. Pass the Exams
  3. Download your Certificate.

When learners register, they are provided with online access to the Training Programme content.

The Programme consists of 30 Units of Study, separated into 7 Modules.

Learners have up to 18 months to complete the Programme.

Assessment is by online Tests and Examinations. 

At the end of each Unit is an online multiple-choice Test which Learners must pass (75%) in order to progress to take the Module Exam.

There is no limit to the time taken to complete Unit Tests or to how many times a Unit Test can be taken.

There are a total of eight* Module Exams.  (*This is because Module 4 is separated into two Exams.)

Module Exams are conducted online and are time limited.

The percentage needed to pass an ‘End of Module Exam’ is 75%.

In the event that a learner fails to answer enough Module Exam questions correctly, or is timed out (automatic fail), they can re-sit each ‘Module Exam’ up to three times.

When Learners have successfully passed all eight ‘Module Exams’, they have qualified and can immediately download a Certificate confirming their achievement.

Note: If a Learner fails to qualify and wishes to re-start the training, the cost of doing so will be charged at only 50% of the prevailing price.
