A certificate will be available from the ‘My Courses’ section, for you to download and print, once you have completed the course.  A permanent record of your total CPD hours will also be recorded in your account section.


Upon purchase you will be immediately registered to attend the course, with unlimited lifetime access.  The course will consist of four lessons, where each lesson provides 2 hours of CPD, in the form of a tutorial, a quiz and also a selection of further reading journals, articles or book chapters.


The course is completely flexible, where all the learning resources are  provided immediately – it is designed for you to complete one lesson of 2 hours each week, however you may also opt to do the whole course in one sitting, or log in for 5 minutes once a month – it is entirely your decision.  This type of course is perfect if you are self driven and can motivate yourself to learn independently – if you prefer more structured courses, then please have a look at our online tutored courses instead.


The certificate will be automatically issued when all the lessons have been completed.  Unfortunately, fewer CPD hours cannot be awarded if you do not complete all the tasks.
