Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are
essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self
Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what
was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.
Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete
this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of
you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as
it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a
habit of working to specification in the field of human behaviour, will
impress employers, and will be more efficient when self employed.
A Final Exam is offered upon satisfactory completion of all assignments.
This is optional. If you choose to apply for and do this exam, you will
have the possibility of obtaining a "formal credit" or "Pass
Certification" for this course. A fee applies. The exam may be sat under
prearranged conditions anywhere in the world. This college will award
you a formal transcript, upon successful completion of the exam, as
proof of your results.
