The asynchronous parts of the course allows you to learn and complete assessments at your own pace before the final exam.
Each unit covers several eBook chapters. Each chapter includes a snapshot, written instruction, examples, e-lessons on select technical topics, summary problems, and multiple-choice practice questions.
Quizzes consists of 25 multiple-choice questions that have been selected to test your understanding of the technical topics in each unit.
Integrated problems draw from the technical topics covered in each unit and provide you with an opportunity to practise applying technical knowledge in an integrated manner.
Integrated problems are marked by a facilitator.
Practice cases provide you with an opportunity to hone your case-writing skills and apply technical knowledge in a 60-minute scenario. The practice case is designed to be written in exam-like conditions within the suggested time noted in the case.
Practice cases are marked by a facilitator.
Retired exam cases are cases that were included in a past module exam. Writing retired exam case is optional; however, you are strongly encouraged to write the cases under time-constrained exam conditions to prepare for the end of module exam.
After your facilitator has returned feedback on your integrated problem and practice case submissions, you can perform a debrief using the feedback received.
