What happens if my course enrolment expires before I finish the course?

The online Safe Ministry Essentials and Refresher course both have an enrolment period of six months.
You should complete all the self-paced topics, the live webinar and the post-webinar topic within that period.

If your course enrolment (six months) expires before you can complete your training (including the webinar and post webinar Topic), then you will need to ‘Enrol‘ and pay for your course again, which will gain you an additional enrolment period, and you will need to start your course from the beginning .

How long do the online courses take to complete?

In general, the online courses will probably take a similar amount of time as the face to face training has done – 2.5 hours for Refresher and up to 5 hours for Essentials. The actual amount of time will however depend on the individual and how fast they read, absorb and interact with the information.

Remember that much of the online courses are self-paced, meaning that you do not have to complete them in one sitting, however, the live webinar only happens at fixed days/times each month, and if it is a busy period, you may need to wait up to two weeks for a free spot in a webinar.

When you enrol in online training, your enrolment lasts for six months and ALL aspects of the training need to be completed within that period.
Your enrolment expiry is displayed on your Dashboard and the course landing page and you will be sent reminder emails throughout the enrolment period.
