How do our short courses work?
As you progress through this short course you will become familiar with a variety of different ways to expand your learning and be able to choose the tasks that you do/don’t wish to take. You will also be able to develop in the areas that take your fancy more than others that just don’t do it for you. You won’t miss anything important so long as you read the “learn more” suggestions. Following each lesson, there will be a short interactive test to complete. This will give an indication on how you are progressing through the course and ensuring that you are on the right track. Upon completion of the last lesson in the course, a more thorough automated test will need to be completed to finalise your learning level. This can be completed anytime and if an overall pass is gained you will receive a “certificate of completion”.
