  • how to navigate through the course
  • how to assess your current knowledge

Step 4

You can assess your current knowledge with the Pre-Assessment test. Optional pre-assessment tests are available that use performance-based testing techniques to assess your current skills and knowledge of the topics covered in the course.

Taking the pre-assessment tests is recommended as it may enable you to reduce your total learning time. Results from each pre-assessment will generate a personalised Learning Track focusing only on the topics for which you need additional attention. However, if you have no prior knowledge of the content of the course you may want to begin learning immediately.

To do so click the button Begin Course.
