In short the answer is Yes. We estimate that to complete the online component will take approximately 4 hours of self study. The online assignments are open book and take between 4 to 10 minutes each to complete.
When the assignments are completed an email response is sent to your inbox advising you of your results and sections that need to be reviewed. When candidates are consistently acheiving 80-85% in the online components then we recommend sitting the final face-to-face 'closed book' examination.
When the final 50 question multiple choice examination has been completed the examination papers are returned to the OMC for marking by the Invigilator. This is the longest part of the process as it can take up to a week to get a result back.
