The time it takes to complete each qualification varies from student to student, depending on the qualification you are studying and your personal circumstances.

For our distance-learning qualifications, the following timescales can be used to estimate how much time you will need to spend studying and completing theory assessments before attending your practical assessment. These timescales are based on 2 hours study per day:

  • Certificate – 4 weeks
  • Diploma – 6 weeks

However, it is important to remember these are just approximate guides and will timescales will vary depending on the amount of time you are able to commit to your studies.
