What is the difference between our Online Zoom Course and the Online Self Study Course? 

Our Online Zoom Classes are hosted live via Zoom at certain times and we record each session in case you can’t make it. 

The Self Study Courses have a set start date with 12-month of full access to the online platform. However, there are no fixed times to log-on as there is no "live" delivery of content. Students will learn through a range of independent and/or group activities supported by videos and quizzes, designed to achieve the required learning outcomes to prepare for the examination.

Throughout the course, students will have access to a subject-specialist educator who’ll provide feedback on any assigned exercises and respond to course-related queries.
