Those taking part in the course will be supplied with pdf’s of all the modules and will have access to email assistance should it be required. They can then go through the course material and undertake the practical tasks at their own pace, either at work or at home. To undertake the course you won't need any specialist equipment, just a standard desktop or laptop computer with a good internet connection.

The course can be taking quickly within a week or over a six month period and at the end of the course there is an online multiple choice exam which can be taken.

We are currently in discussions with a UK University for some level of accreditation or recognition for the course.

The price of the full Distance Learning course is £500 +vat per user but during the coronavirus lockdown period we have discounted it to £399 +vat per user. For those companies or organisations signing up more than 10 staff then we are able to offer a discount rate.
