As it is an accredited course it relies on self-led learning and learners can expect a significant amount of pre-course work and post course tasks, which reflect the level of accreditation:
- 4,000 word assignments x 2
- 128 total unit time (TUT), which is based on classroom time, your daily workload and job role, and time taken to write the assessments.This TUT is very much dependent on experience and familiarity with the content and also includes the training time and previous experience, for example, someone who has not come across the theory will have to spend much longer learning and understanding the topics.
