You should note the end date for your course when you register. You can also check for the final month date on your course schedule. This is the month your course effectively ends. Typically, print-based correspondence courses last 8 or 11 months. Online courses typically complete within 4 or 8 months.
Please Note: online courses should be completed within the time allowed as websites are closed after the course end date, in order to revise for subsequent offerings.
In some cases acceleration through the course is possible. Check with the course instructor, before registering, to see if he or she can accommodate your wish to finish the course earlier than scheduled. If you have permission from the instructor to move ahead at a faster pace, you must apply to write your exam early. See the exams section for more information.
