Study Credits

Your current study credits


To earn a diploma, you must collect a certain number of study credits in addition to having completed the required courses, filled in your training logbook and having been proficiency verified.

You can earn study credits by reading articles, watching videos, and participating in course forums. Study credits are important. While reading articles and watching videos will provide you with extra knowledge, participating in course forums, allows you to pose questions and participate in debates with your colleagues and with your tutors. In distance education, course forums are often the only way a tutor gets to know his/her students.
