Is there a time limit to completing the module?
You can start the module at your earliest convenience. You don’t need to complete the module in one go. Go at your own speed and log in multiple times.

Your modules are most compatible with a PC or laptop but can also be accessed by a smart phone.

ISO: This exam is made up of 40 multiple choice questions
Exams – When will I get my results?
The turnaround time for exams with exercises is 2 weeks. If the exam is multiple choice only, exam results will be sent within 24 hours (we need to check the LMS shows results straight away and then we just have to add these on SF which triggers the email – when integrated this may be automated).
When will I receive my CPD certificate?
After completing the course and evaluation form you will be able to view the CPD certificate by scrolling to the bottom of your module page, and select “certificate” under the “Course Evaluation and Certificate” heading. From there select “get your certificate”.
