At the beginning of the course students are assigned a tutor who will guide them through the learning experience. Students will also have access to other tutors who each have their own area of expertise.
The course is delivered in four parts, each part being made up of a number of modules. There are 29 modules in all.
At the end of each module students can test their understanding with short self-administered quizzes.
The multiple choice questions fall at the end of each part. The format is similar to the IQ examination that students will sit at the end of the course. The tutor must be satisfied that students have understood that part of the course before allowing access to the following part.
In addition there are a number of assignments within each part which students will be asked to complete before the end of the course.
There is an online library that provides an additional resource to fully explore the work of the professional investigator.
