Frequently Asked Questions

How does the course work?

All the essential information you need is packed into 25 modules which we will courier to your door. This easy to understand course is designed for your own personal use at home. The modules can be completed in about two hours each. You have eighteen months before you need to write the five online exams, which allows plenty of time.

Are there any tests or exams?

Each module concludes with a self-assessment to help you consolidate what you have learnt and test yourself. The final exams are completed online, once you advise us that you are ready. These exams are all multiple choice, but some questions will require you to have a pen and paper ready to do calculations. Your results are provided immediately after completing each exam. If you pass all five exams, we'll send you a certificate. If you are not successful, you will be provided with an opportunity to re-write.

The exams must be completed within 18 months of registering.
