1. How long will the online course take me to complete?
The online course is designed to take 20 hours (on average) to work through. An advantage of online learning is that you can learn at your own speed and review specific areas as often as you need to gain a full understanding. It could take a little longer in some cases.
2. How quickly do I have to complete the online course?
Enrolment gives you access to the online course for one year from when the course fee has been received.
If you do not complete the online course within the year or if you would like to access the course for longer for revision purposes extensions are offered at £30/ €33 for 3 months. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the support team will assist you with this.
3. What qualifications do I gain from completing the course?
The Colposcopy Course Online has been approved by the BSCCP (The British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology). Completion of the course will be accepted by the BSCCP for training purposes and towards accreditation. The Colposcopy Course Online can be completed instead of attending any of the BSCCP approved Basic seminar courses.
The course has also been approved for colposcopy training by the EFC (European Federation for Colposcopy) and has been accredited by the Norwegian Medical Association, with 16 credit hours in postgraduate and continuing training for physicians in Gynaecology and Obstetrics.
Please note that while the Advanced Course is approved by BSCCP for training and professional development, it has not yet been authorised for the purposes of re-accreditation.
