Duration

Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 100. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.

We would encourage students to seriously consider how they plan to complete their chosen course prior to enrolment. Students should think about how they are going to study, where they are going to study and how often. Be realistic!

Speak to family members and help them to understand what you are trying to achieve, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likely you are to get them on your side.

Students are reminded that the time in which they complete is purely down to them as an individual. Completion can be as quickly or as slowly as you wish within the 12 month support period. Please note: CIW does not provide students with additional time to complete. Extensions are not available for this course.

Students are able to complete their course purely online through the CIW student portal. This will be accompanied by course lessons issued in PDF format (Ebook). PDF is not printable

If you prefer you can choose to receive a hard copy of the course lessons/books via the post at an additional cost. Contact us for details.

Students can expect to receive access to the CIW portal via email within 3 working days of enrolment being received.
