Online Details

Online environment: This course is interactive, instructor-led, and divided into weekly modules. At the end of each week, the current module will close and a new module will open. This way, the entire class progresses through the materials together, just like classroom training. There are no provisions for you to skip modules or work ahead of the rest of the class.

This is not a self-paced course. Although there are no specific times that you must be online, you will be required to complete assignments each week by the deadlines posted within the course. You should plan to dedicate an average of five to eight hours per week to the course activities. You must be committed to the course and invest the time necessary for successful completion.

The instructors will be available by email and on discussion boards throughout the course. They will be your guides and will assist you with questions and advanced discussions at every step along the way.

Computer requirements: You will complete the course entirely online. A dependable broadband internet connection, a Windows or Mac computer that you have administrative access to, and a webcam with microphone is required.


This course is not eligible for certificate discounts.
