4. Terms & Conditions: Complying with Course Selection Prerequisites
Course Prerequisites are what the Learner is expected to already know, in order to be qualified to register for the course wanted. To identify the actual level of existing/prior computer knowledge, Learners need to provide proof of evidence of the knowledge they claim already have [otherwise such knowledge would only be assumed]. In fact, with existing computer knowledge, some Learners only claim they know, without realising what they don’t know – which results in leaving big gaps behind.
For more information please see: Recognition of Prior Learning
[Hyperlink to RPL – Recognition of Prior Learning]
Please note that: Each Course Prerequisites is clearly stated on each Course Outline, Quotation, and Invoice. Thus, Clients/Learners, and any Authorized Decision Makers need to read, understand, and comply with it, responsibly.
We are glad to answer any questions; or assist in the process of any required pre-assessments, for the Learners to determine where they really stand with their existing/prior computer knowledge. For more information please see: What you need to know at Registration
[Hyperlink to What you need to know at Registration]
Please note that: not complying with the required Prerequisites (not taking them seriously) often could have direct negative impact on Learner’s successful completion of the registered course(s); and in any such case, the responsibility lies with the Client/Learner. But if Clients/Learners comply with the prerequisites (or take their courses systematically) and leave no gaps behind, we welcome them to attend Free Course-Attendance-Repeats, as may be required by some Learners.
