Once you have enrolled and made a payment, you have the choice to receive your course materials either by utilising our state of the art online platform (you will require a computer and access to the internet), or we can post out the course materials to be handwritten into.

This varies, dependent on how much time you have to commit to your studies, how disciplined you are, and what your experience is. Someone with more experience managing a business, will usually be able to complete the course in a faster timeframe, than someone with no experience. You have up to 12 months to complete, but you may finish in a much shorter timeframe, dependent on the above mentioned factors.
