*This course does not include a copy of ISO 19011:2018 as it is not required for you to complete your training.  Course content includes extracts from the standards in the form of clause statements as per the example below.

The courses are broken up into a series of modules and the assessment is completed as part of the learning, step-by-step, module-by-module.

Knowledge Checks

At the end of each module, you are given the opportunity to complete a non-graded Knowledge Check before moving on to your final assessments. You can view the content and complete the knowledge checks as many times as you like.  These are marked instantly by the learning management system so you know exactly which content you may need to review further.  This gets you confident and prepared to do the final module assessment.

Module Assessment

Once you are confident that you have a thorough understanding of the content you can move on to the module assessment. You are given three attempts at each assessment, after which it is locked for review by a trainer and assessor to see how we can best help you. The assessment is then unlocked for another three attempts, providing you with the time and support needed to review content, review results, and consult with assessors.  

We have found that students with all types of learning styles find this an effective way to receive their qualifications.
