How it Works

You will complete this course through self guided study, and will not receive any tutor support with the course. Working your way through the online course materials, you will then complete a multiple choice question and answer exam. But don’t worry too much, as you can resit your exam as many times as you like…at no extra cost!

The great news is that there are no entry requirements or previous knowledge required to start this course. All learners will receive a Level 2 NCC Certificate in Autism Awareness upon completion of the course.
