Most Research Essentials modules take only 2-4 hours to complete. A course of around 30 modules and electives may take around a year to complete, and a Skill Set or Competency (about 8-10 modules) around 6 months.

Please note that all PRAXIS courses must be completed within 12 months of enrolment.

What sort of qualification do I get at the end?

After completing each module, you will get a certificate of completion that you can download. This can be used for accruing CPD points: 24 points for a core skill set, and 3 CPD points for each module.

Are there assessment tasks?

Yes – each module has 3-4 short answer or multiple-choice assessment tasks built-in so you can check your knowledge as you progress.
