How does taking an online course work?
Registration is ongoing, and at any time. Students are able to start a course at any point in the school year. After you have registered, you will work at the course at your own convenience. The course is developed to follow the Ontario curriculum standards. In the course, you will find lessons, assignments, practice questions, quizzes, and tests. Everything you need is found online in our Learning Management System, Moodle. The final exam is proctored.
Who can take a course?
Anyone can take a course with our school. As long as you have the prerequisite to the course you are wanting to take, you are able to enrol.
You can live anywhere in the world and still take a course with us online.
How long does a course take to complete?
Students are able to work at their own pace. Which means you can work as fast or slow as you want. Students have a maximum of 8 months to finish a course. The minimum time a course takes is 1 month. Each course is intended to be 110 hours, and you will find how that time is broken down in each course syllabus. The 110 hours is reflected in the lessons and assignments. Please note that it might take you longer to complete an assignment. Moodle will track your login time within the course.
