Important Online Course Information:


Course Delivery

This is an instructor-led online course that is delivered through a Learning Management System (LMS). Interaction with the instructor and other students occurs via email and discussion threads within the course.

Course Requirements

There is no requirement for a webcam or to be online at a designated time for scheduled activities or discussions. You may log in whenever you want during the defined course session, but you must be active in the course from start date to end date. You must complete all course requirements within a short time, by the course end date.

Course Timing

The amount of time it will take to complete the course varies by student; however, for a 20-hour course, you should expect to spend at least 20 hours reading and completing the assignments during the class session. We advise that you spend, at a minimum, 90 minutes a day to ensure that you complete the course before the course end date.

Course Materials

There is no course textbook. The main course material for each module is contained in a required reading assignment that you can save or print for note-taking and ongoing reference.
