Additional Information:
With the eLearning platform, you can track your progress and invest more time in the areas you need to. You can also speed through those areas where you have greater knowledge and more confidence. Assessments at the end of modules are designed to test your knowledge. But if you fail these, don't worry - when you relaunch the module, you can begin a 'new attempt' and try the assessment again. The same applies to stand-alone assessment modules.

A course will be marked as 'Complete' once all of its modules have been passed. Even if you have completed a course, you can still go back to revise a particular topic again, as long as you do so within the 60-day timeframe. You can also make a note of any topics you found difficult, and make a note to ask your tutor when you attend your full, classroom-based course.

When you have booked your online training, you will receive an email notification with your login details. You will then have 60 days from purchase date to complete your eLearning course.
