Course description and workflow

The elearning course is divided into 11 chapters and a final test. You can interrupt, restart or repeat all 11 chapters at any point. You decide when you want to work on the course - as it fits into your daily schedule.

You can start the final test only once and receive a certificate only once. So you should be undisturbed during the final test.

  • Your completion time is completely individual - you have 90 days.
  • A module that is easy for you, you might be able to complete in 30 minutes.
  • For a difficult chapter you might need more than 60 minutes - divided into several attempts.
  • Plan on at least 45 minutes for the final test

Actual completion time varies greatly by individual.

Duration of use:

After activating the booking code, the course is available for 90 days on the learning platform for processing. After successful course completion (including certificate), the online course is open for viewing until the 90 days expire.
