Training Course Content

The course is a blended learning programme with e-learning content and other online resources, supported by a schedule of live webinars with a tutor. 

The course content is delivered through an online learning platform, where you can also ask questions and discuss topics with other students and the tutor. The webinars are live events delivered through the Adobe Connect webinar platform, but they are recorded so that you can revise the content or catch up if you can’t attend.

Two practice tasks are set during the course, which are intended to support revision around certain topics and will help you to prepare for the exam if you choose to take it. These do not count towards the final assessment but will provide feedback on your progress.

As the practice tasks and webinars are scheduled to take place at fixed times, if you want to join the course after the October start date, we suggest that you discuss this with us before you register.
