The course is virtual and it's based on individual assignments and self-directed proceeding within a flexible time frame. However, depending on the implementation it may contain visitor lectures that may not be recorded.
Recognition of prior learning (RPL)
If students have acquired the required competence in previous work tasks, recreational activities or on another certified course, they can show their competence and gain the course credits via a demonstration agreed with the teacher. More information for recognizing and validating prior learning (RPL) are available at MyNet.
The learning material is mainly composed of video lessons, articles, visitor lectures, discussions on forums and tutorials of software tools. The assignments include multi-choice quizzes, automation hands-on exercises and a design assignment.
Starting level and linkage with other courses
The student must be ready for self-directed planning of the work and independent information seeking by using discussion forums, among others. No programming experience is required but the student must possess a trial-and-error approach for solving the hands-on exercises of automation.
