In March 2021 the ECoP e-Learning Course starts and will take 9 months.
ECoP e- learning course
Each e-Learning module starts with an intake-exam related to the subject to investigate the level of knowledge within the group of participants. After this intake-exam there will be a TEAMS-meeting with the Course Directors to explain the participants what is expect of the participants during that month and which chapters of books or papers have to be read to acquire the necessary knowledge. It is expected that each participant will need around 30 hours a month to read the learning material.
Before the exit-exam a second TEAMS-meeting will be organized with the Course Directors and all participants to address questions about the modules. The exit-exam will be taken after this meeting and will contain 40 multiple choice questions.
The next table shows the modules, in which 2 subjects will be covered a month, and the names of the course directors.
