How is each course taught?
 

All courses are online and self-paced, meaning you do it in your own home, in your own time, at your own pace.  Each lesson is pre-recorded allowing you to pause, fast-forward, skip sections, or go back to another lesson if you need to.  The lessons are multi-media based, which means video and audio are used to teach the lessons.  Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate.  This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks, and using simulators as if you were using the real software program.

 
How long will it take me to complete each course?
 

As mentioned above, our courses are self-paced.  Some people finish their course faster than others.  Each certification course is between 12-30 hours. If you choose to only do one of the certification courses from this bundle, then it will take you less time than if you do two or three or all of them.  No matter what though, you will always have 12 months to complete your course.
