Self-Directed Online Course

Self-directed online training is ideal for people who are self-motivated, prefer to set their own hours, work at their own pace and manage their schedule independently. 

In most cases, self-directed courses can be started anytime because it is expected that you follow the written instructions and complete assignments and tasks on your own.  You can complete the course in any order, skip a section you don’t need and complete an activity or quiz as many times as you wish.  You may have some interaction with other students or a facilitator, but in most cases you are accessing the course independently.

Note: There may be some external deadlines and expectations if your employer requires you to complete the course.  For example, you may be required to work independently to complete and pass an online health and safety training program within a specific timeline.
