The course starts when you are ready to enroll and you can complete the Course at your own pace once the next Unit is released.

Once you have completed a Unit please press the green "Mark as completed" button at the bottom of the Unit.  This must be done in order to be able to move onto and view the next Unit.

The first two lessons (Module 1 and Module 2 Unit 1) are available from when you enroll. Subsequent units (Module 2 Unit 2 onwards) are released every 7 days from when you started the course.  If the Unit has been released/is accessible, but there is no text yet in the Unit, please check back in a week as we are still in the process of writing it.

Once you have read all the Units and completed all the quizzes, you can download a PDF certificate of completion.  To do this, first make sure you have pressed the green button: "mark as completed" at the end of all of the Units.  (On the page listing all Units, a green tick will appear on the right hand side of a Unit indicating that that particular Unit has been completed).  When every single Unit and quiz has been completed, you will see a green "Download certificate" button at the bottom of every Unit which you can press to automatically generate a certificate of completion.
