Education is central to development - both in the sense of personal advancement and in the wider context, defined as the development of countries. Our online programmes help you to systematically and successfully develop your qualifications and to build your career while recognizing the social function of education.
FSDF e-Campus online courses are conducted completely online. The final exam will also be taken in digital form.
Our online certification programmes are 6-month part-time trainings, designed to be conducted along full-time work or other obligations. Apart from a few deadlines, the courses follow a very flexible approach, allowing participants to follow their own study schedule.
FSDF online certification courses start twice a year, beginning of March and beginning of September.
The flexibility of our courses offers you the opportunity to follow your own schedule and to combine daily work with professional development.
The high quality offered will immediately improve your daily job performance as well as the performance of your institution.
After viewing the lectures, participants will have a basic understanding of each topic and will be able to classify importance and relevance of different techniques and aspects in a broader context.
Web based presentation complement the scripts and give additional input on important topics.
Each unit ends with an online test comprising a set of 10 - 15 multiple choice questions. Only after having successfully completed an online test you will gain access to the next unit.

Studying an online course has many advantages. But there is one particular disadvantage that many participants suffer from: usually you always learn alone, without face-to-face contact with peers, lecturers, or support team.
