Courses must be completed following a specific course schedule. While most tasks are completed independently and at a learner's own pace, students must follow the general course progression of 1 module/week for the course of 10 weeks. Course are offered on a rotational basis, and are all subject to minimum enrolment.

We strongly recommend that students take the courses in order. However, it is possible to take them in any order.

If students decide to take the courses out of order, they might have some difficulties during the program.
