How are the distance learning courses organized?

The distance learning courses are organized into chapters, each reflecting a different aspect of the competency concerned. Each course is self-paced and designed to be suitable for periodic study based on your schedules and habits. There are pre-tests (with answers) and chapter quizzes to help you self-assess your course progress. Chapter quizzes and exercises will give you instant feedback to test your understanding of the materials as well as to analyse some issues relevant to your own situation.
