How is CFAL offered?

CFAL is a self-paced class for teaching adult learners offered in modules and units of study. There are 3 modules and a total of 30 individual units designed to improve training effectiveness.

Each unit contains relevant content and requires either a self-test or a submission test. Self-tests are completed by you and can be taken as many times as needed to understand the concepts. 

Submission tests are reviewed by your assigned mentor and written feedback is given to you thorough a collaboration page set up on Google Drive. By the end of the course your Google Drive page will contain your program design ready to you to download and teach.

Why take this online course?
