How is the course structured?

The course content is split into individual sections, with each section concluding in a mini quiz, which needs to be completed before moving onto the next section. Once all sections have been completed, you can proceed to the examination.

What happens if I fail the exam?

If the learner fails their exam, then they can retake it as many times as necessary (within the 12-month shelf-life of the course) at no extra cost. Once the course has been completed within the shelf-life period, the candidate gains unlimited life-time access to the course material should they wish to come back and refresh their memory.

Once the exam has been completed successfully, the learner will receive an online certificate instantly, which they can then download and print off.
