All courses have general information about the tutor and a course orientation guide. The main course lessons sit below.
The lessons vary in length (some are shorter, some are longer) depending on the course material covered.
At the end of the lesson you will need to take the lesson quiz. It is a simple quiz to check your learning. You can take the quiz as many time as you need to get it right. You won’t be able to view the next lesson until you’ve passed the quiz.
Any lesson resources, such as references, papers, worksheets will sit below the video.
We’d encourage you post your reflections in the comments section below the lesson (see below on Community). We know that those people who are actively reflecting on learning are getting more out of the courses.
Completion of all lessons and all quizzes will complete the course and issue the certificate, which you can access from the Dashboard.
