    This course is complete via self paced distance learning, however it is expected that students will complete 12 to 15 hours of self scheduled study each week to remain compliant with the government funding course requirements.

    Students can finish the course at a faster rate however this will be dependent on the factors which include external commitments, relevant skills, knowledge and experience within the area of study and motivation and dedication to course studies and their outcome.

    Due to this flexibility there is a lower drop out rate thus saving students time and money vested in their desired outcomes. In addition, flexible adult learning encourages students to continue the course at their own pace without restrictions as to when and how you complete the course. Therefore, students are able to continue their life roles and incorporate their study into time slots that suit their lifestyles.

Students have 12 months in which to complete all of their assessments.
