Frequently asked questions

Is the course a live webinar?

The course is not a webinar. This online course is made up of carefully scripted pre-recorded videos to maximize your learning. You can watch it as many times as you like, whenever and wherever you want. You can not download the course though, thus you will need to have an internet connection to take the course.

How long does it take to complete the course?

All in all, the average time to complete the course is 5-10 hours. Please note, you don’t have to watch the whole course at once. In fact you can pause, resume and replay as often as you like. The only limitation is the final exam, where you will only have one shot.

How long will I have access to the course?

You will have access to the course for six months.

What if I lose internet connection during the final exam?

You need to have contact with our servers for your results to register on the final exam. If your computer for some reason has a problem and does not allow you to send the result of the final exam to our servers, we recommend that you take a photo or a “print screen” of the screen with your results. E-mail this image to us and we will investigate if you have successfully completed the exam and therefore should receive a course certificate even though the result has not been registered, or if you have to do the final exam again.

Can I fail the final exam?

There is no pass/fail on the final exam (as long as you complete it within the time frame). Your result will be printed on the course certificate which means you can be really proud of your result if you get between 90% and 100% of the answers correct!

Where can I find my course certificate?

The course certificate is available for download after completing the final exam. All you need to do is log in to your account, go to My Courses and scroll down. You will find it under Your Course Certificates.
