How you will be assessed

Even though this is a short course, completing it will still take a considerable amount of time and effort.

Some of the very simple strategies we know work include:

Get up half an hour before the family in the mornings (2.5 hours per week or 5 hours if you study between 6 and 7 am, as an example) Replace social media or television use for one hour of study per day (5 – 7 hours per week) These ‘low family/life impact’ strategies plus a few catch-up days/weekends will mean you can complete the course without making huge sacrifices. Ultimately, however, how you manage your time is up to you.

The course is broken into weeks with specific topics, it is designed to work you step by step through the concepts.


To complete the course and receive your certificate you need to complete the course material (videos, articles etc) and achieve a required grade on the test at the end.

There is one self-paced test within this course, made up of 10 multiple-choice questions. You must achieve an average of 70% of the available marks in order to qualify for a certificate from this course. Review quizzes are also provided throughout.
