The final exam consists of 30-45 randomly selected quiz questions, taken once under timed conditions, for verification of training and course certificate issuance. No pass/fail, but the score is recorded in training record.

Course certificate

Classroom sessions (2 * 3.5 h)

The classroom sessions, held over two half-days (3.5 hours each), provide a highly interactive environment for applying the theory learned during the online course.

Checkmark MDHQ Self-paced and bite-sized learning

Our interactive online courses offer the flexibility to learn at your own pace. The high-quality videos are designed in bite-sized segments. There are quiz questions throughout with a final exam at the end to test learning.

Checkmark MDHQ Reference material

We understand the importance of retaining knowledge beyond the course duration. That’s why we provide a downloadable PDF file of the key course concepts which you can print off and take notes in.

Frequently asked questions

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.

All in all, the average time to complete the course is 1-2 hours, but you can complete it in less time if you don’t repeat any of the lessons and have just one attempt at the quizzes. 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.

You will have access to the course for two months.

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.
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!

The course certificate is not available for this type of course. 

Yes, you can. The course is in HTML5 format which will play on any new iOS, Android or Windows devices.
The course is personal, that means you buy a license for one person. It is also really inexpensive compared to any traditional course with the same scope. If you have more than one person needing the course, please purchase another seat on the course.
There is no certification or accreditation for design control, however the instructor has conducted training in the field for many years and continuously participates in authoring standards such as the ISO 13485 and ISO 14971. This ensures the instructor has access to leading edge knowledge and information which is the highest qualification available for teaching the course.
There are no pre-requisites for this course.
