Module Level Courses

The “Module” series of eLearning courses are bite-size portions of their “Certificate” course parent. All of the courses are between 1 and 8 hours in length and are therefore very achievable – even with a busy personal and work life. Delegates can progress through each individual course and receive a “Module” certificate on successful completion.
