The courses are module-based, and modules can be completed at your own pace. Each course is set up with required, elective and optional modules. A mark of 80% is required to complete a course. Passing score applies to an overall 80% obtained for a course, not per module.

Required modules – All modules must be completed to earn a completion report.

Elective modules - Elective modules may be listed. If listed, a specific number are required to be completed to earn a completion report. Elective modules count toward your completion mark.

Optional modules – Once you’ve completed all Required and Electives (if applicable), you can complete any available Optional modules. Optional modules DO NOT count toward your completion mark.

You may re-take any module to improve your mark. Only the latest mark will be displayed and count toward your completion mark.

Certificates – Once you have completed the course, you will receive an email notification and a link to the certificate. Please download a copy for your records. You will be able to access your certificates within your CITI profile at any time.

Course content will still be available to you, after you completed the course.
