DO YOUR COURSES CORRESPOND TO ANY ACADEMIC PROGRAM?
Various schools and colleges offer different programs. On most titles, the material is aimed at the fundamentals of every one of the topics most likely to appear in academic programs. If you're looking for academic credit, we offer an online management certificate in collaboration with CALMAT..
How do your online courses work?
Our courses are like online interactive presentations. You take the lessons by navigating between slides. Each slide contains different kinds of content: text, audio, video, questions, activities or weblinks. The lessons are self paced. This means you control the progress of the lesson: you navigate forward only when you feel ready, and you can always go back to revisit an important topic. Take a deeper look by visiting our features page.

The access duration for each course is noted below the enroll button on the course page.
How long does it take to complete a course?
Our courses are self-paced, meaning that it is entirely up to you. Some learners might take five hours to complete a course, others - twenty. We try to estimate the minimum time it would take the fastest learner to complete a course, and you can find that information in our course descriptions.
How Should I Manage My Time?
The courses are self-paced, but nevertheless do come with a deadline. We recommend taking at least one or two lessons every day. The best part of the day to do so is up to you, and depends on your learning habits and your other commitments. In any case, try not to let more than 2-3 days pass without viewing a lesson, solving a quiz, or writing up an assignment, in order to keep the material fresh in your mind.

The access to your chosen course is granted immediately after checkout. This does not apply to CALMAT university certificate courses, in which access is granted after an orientation interview.
Is your certificate recognized by any official institution?
