  1. is there any criteria for selection to take the Free course?
    how are the 55hours of tution divided? how is the certificate received?

    1. Dear Gia

      There are no criteria. Anyone can enroll for this course. You just need to create an account there.

      55 hours of tuition is divided into separate modules with separate chapters.

      A hard copy of the Certificate will be sent to the address mentioned by you (while creating the account) from Geneva. It takes some 2 months after the result is declared.

      Hope, this answers your queries.



  2. Thanku for rep. Vivek.
    As I read the details, the registration begins on 1st Feb’13
    1.Accordingly, when can we take the exams? Is there a time frame to appearing for the tests?
    2.the 55hours of tution are segregated n alloted by them?
    3.Except the material on the site where can study material be reffered to?

    1. Dear Gia

      There is a time frame given for the exam. It is conducted three times a year. You can take the exam in any of the phase (of these three) within the time period prescribed.

      Yes, it’s segregated and allotted by them.

      The material provided by them is in itself sufficient.

      hope, these answers your queries.


  3. The course catalog states that there is no certificate for this course, while over here it is given that there is a certificate…..???????

    1. I think if you have already registered for one session, you don’t need to register for another. The course is open for total nine (9) months. You can choose to take the exam at any of the three (3) pre-scheduled times mentioned. Since one is already over, you can now take the tests on either between July 22-28
      or October 28-November 3.
      Hope it helps! 🙂

    1. You can register for this course any time between 01st of February to 03rd of November this year.
      Exams for Session 2 and 3 would be on July 22-28
      and October 28-November 3 respectively.
      Hope it helps!
