Course Instructions

The courses on diploma have been set up with the following study pattern in mind:

  2. The student should first read and watch or listen to the study material of Module 1.1.
  3. When the student has thoroughly mastered Module 1.1 he or she should then proceed to the Module 1.1 Test. (The tests follow the multiple choice format. The number of attempts allowed is unlimited. But the grading will be calculated according to the highest score on all attempts. So, for example, if you made three attempts and got 40%, 60%, 80% respectively, your final grade would be 80%.)
  4. 80% overall course average is required to be eligible to receive the certificate.
  5. After passing the Module 1.1 Test, the student should then proceed to Module 1.2 and follow the same procedure till the end of the course.
