Course Materials


As soon as you enrol your hard copy course materials are sent to you. Access to the online learning portal is also immediately processed. Our experience has shown that students studying online still like to receive their own copy of the text books and course material. This helps when you feel like studying from the text without having to start your computer! It is also excellent reference material once you graduate or go into practice.
