It is mandatory to attend all the three modules as you will be required to complete assessment activities during this time.  In addition to class assessments, you will require additional time beyond these twelve days to complete four (4) assessment projects; the first to be released on 30 April 2021 (4 weeks prior to Module 1) for submission at the start of Module 1.  Project 2 is to be completed between Modules 1 and 2 and the remaining 2 projects are to be completed between Modules 2 and 3.  The time needed to complete these assessments will vary, depending on an individual’s preference and capabilities.
