  • What is the deadline for this course?

    Once you are enrolled in this course there is no rush to complete the content. You have unlimited access to the content and can take your time to work through each module.

  • How long would it take me to complete this course?

    One of our learners recently completed the course content within 2 days as she was needing a certificate of completion for her employer. However, there is a lot of content that can be used alongside children so some educators and teachers will be coming back and viewing the content over the next 12 months.
