Frequently Asked Questions
English is my second language. I read it better than I speak/write it. Can I still take the course?
Don't worry. As long as you can read and understand the course material clearly, you will be able to write about the assignments too. Our tutors are used to students from all over the world and you will also find that your ability to express yourself in English gets better as the course progresses. We won't be judging you on your language skills, only on what you are learning practically throughout the course.
How long do I have to complete the course?
You have one year from the day you sign up to complete the course. In extraordinary circumstances, an extension can be granted.
How much work do I have to do for the courses?
All courses require you to do practical exercises at home, and then report on your experiences, so that your tutor can judge your progress accurately. There are no multiple choice type assignments.
What is the "interest only" option?
Some people are not interested in gaining a certificate or tutor support; they just want to "know what's in it" for a specific course and read the course materials by themselves. For these people we offer the choice of buying ONLY the course materials for approximately half the price, which then DOES NOT include tutor support or certification. It is possible to upgrade to taking the full certification training by paying the difference at a later date.
Do you have bursaries/reduced fees for special cases?
Nuns, monks and other types of professional non-profit volunteers can be considered for a reduction in fees. Each case is evaluated on its merits. Contact us if you believe you have a valid case for requesting a reduction in course fees.
