In any case, according to the new funding rules for the programming period 2014-2020, participants should prove their technical capacity for participating in most of the european projects and receive EC grants. In this case, such a certification for the organisation's staff will be a significant credit for the technical capacity of any organisation that is involved in european projects. Well structured with specific learning objectives and path The learning path comprises 7 modules and at the end of each module, you need to reach at least 80% on the quiz module in order to proceed to the next one. You can try each quiz as many times as you wish without any penalties. As soon as all 7 Modules are completed you need to complete a small assignment for receiving also your specialisation certificate by City&Guilds/ILM (Optional). You have one month in total to complete the course and if it is not possible for you then you get one more month extension. (Normally students complete it in around 3 weeks). Live One-to-One Tutoring Sessions to address individual needs and expectations The success of our eCourse is based also on the live interaction with the trainer on a one-to-one basis. Each participant has to arrange at least one skype/live meeting at the beginning of the course for orientation and setting priorities and one at the end for confirming the achievement of the course learning objectives with the instructor. In addition, each participant can arrange weekly skype/live meetings with the instructor in order to discuss any questions on the course. In this respect, we guarantee to address the training needs and expectations of each participant.
