The course is available in two different formats:

  • In the online format, you will complete your course in one seven-week session. You will complete weekly activities and assignments, averaging 10 hours per week of course work. As long as you complete your work by the assigned deadline, you can work at your own pace, and you don't need to be online at a particular time.
  • In the self-study format, you can register and start learning at any time. Once you register, you will have four months to complete the program. Because it is a self-paced program, you will not have weekly assignments or a specific course schedule to follow. Therefore, you will need to be organized, persistent and motivated to stay on track to complete your training.
