The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector.




At the conclusion of each module there is a simple multiple choice question assessment. This will help you remember the main points of the lesson and act as a check that you have retained the essential knowledge and understanding of that particular section. The results can be seen instantaneously and you can correct wrong answers. When the result is satisfactory you can progress to the next module.

Having succeeded with the last module’s multi choice review you will be able to take the final online test. When completed it is automatically sent to your tutor for assessment. If you have passed, then notification is sent to you along with PDF’s of your awards and certificates.

If not, you can re-sit this final test as many times as you like.
