Flexible study options
This micro-credential, along with the Grammar and Punctuation (Micro-credential) are worth five credits each. You can enrol in both or do them separately.
These micro-credentials will be taught online over a period of ten weeks each. They have been developed for flexibility, so you can still work while you study.
