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, with the exception of the final exam. The paper-based final exams can be taken on fixed dates at one of our partner institutions spread around the world.
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 next course period will start on September 2018.
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.
A PDF script is for most of our courses the main studying material. The scripts provide basic concepts and principles applicable to the subject of each unit.
The key to successful learning is the immediate use of newly acquired knowledge and the transfer of theory into practice. Our online courses are therefore supplemented by mandatory assignments.
