Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 1 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 1 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 1 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 0.75 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

This course is absolutely brilliant for someone like me that has a busy working life – the modules are chunked into bite sized pieces and are really simple and straightforward to use.

It is easy to dip in and out of and pick up from where you left off – I was certainly glad I chose to pick all 3 levels – I am quite competent with Excel but I have also picked up new pieces of information from the beginners’ modules as well as really developing my skills with the more advanced information.

It has also meant I have had a really good refresh with parts of Excel that I haven’t used for a long time. I advise anyone who is considering skipping straight to the Intermediate or Advanced courses to go for this option – it really has proved excellent value for money!

I have always wanted to do hairdressing but never had the confidence. Since taking this course it has given me the chance I wanted and boosted my confidence.

There is lots of information and videos and you can always re-cap if needed.

Chris Peel

I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants.

This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand.

I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant.

Zuzana Duru

I found the course straight forward and easy to follow.

It’s given me a great understanding of first aid procedures and has outlined some important aspects of looking after pets in general. It paid particular attention to the description of the CPR procedure. I will come in very useful.

The multi choice test at the end is easy to complete and I found the worksheets at the end of each module very helpful to outline the important aspects.
I look forward to completing many more courses on offer to help progress my new dog walking and pet care business.

Thank you.

This course has changed my life. It has opened a lot of door and when I apply for jobs it adds distinction to my CV.

It is easy to take time out after work or on a Sunday and it never gets boring. Your mind is filled with new skills and more information that you would love too use in the real world.

I cannot fault this course. I am now applying for University and completing this course will show how dedicated I am to learning.

Faith Bologun

A great course to reinforce the knowledge I have gained through on-the-job experience. Now I have the confidence in my experience to apply for better jobs to utilise my newly learned skills. Being able to complete the course at my own speed and when convenient was great and suited my situation. Also being able to review the modules as I was progressing really helped it sink in thoroughly. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in HR, any section of the arena, either to learn, to brush up on existing knowledge or like me, to be able to prove that I know the basics of the HR function.
