HOW IS THE TRAINING DELIVERED?
Each Proficiency Course is delivered online over 12 weeks.
Students are expected to join the once-weekly live online lecture ("webinar”), which is interactive and led by an experienced teacher who is a subject matter expert.
Total weekly time commitment will be in the order of 6 to 8 hours: the live webinar, plus readings, practicals, private study and assignment work. Only the webinar is at a set time each week; times allocated for remaining coursework are the student’s choice.
This blend of a set weekly web-based class with flexible coursework and fixed completion dates for quizzes and assignments is a proven system. It provides a superior structure that helps to ensure each student maintains discipline and completes the required coursework. Students will also receive workbooks or reference manuals (included in the fee) as eBooks. These searchable references are invaluable resource and will be used during the course and afterwards.
There will be a specific website for the course, from which students will be able to obtain their weekly readings, access the practicals if required (via cloud-based labs or simulation), make contact with other students, and more.
A dedicated Course Coordinator will be appointed who will serve as the first point of contact for students who require assistance at any stage of the course.
Assessment will be by two quizzes – one at the half-way mark and one at the end of the program, plus an ongoing written assignment that will be due at the end of the program, and may include some practical work (course dependent).
Students will be provided a Record of Completion document after the course which will show the grade achieved.
