Because this course is designed around your specific needs it becomes difficult to give accurate time commitments. As a rough guide it would be around three hours per module.
Once your application has been approved, you will receive notice of approval and an invoice via email. As soon as we see proof of payment, you will receive the first module. We will also send you your tutor’s email address and your login details. Your tutor will also be in touch to welcome you.
