Likewise, it can be a great way for an industry expert to further hone their skills and reap the rewards of a potentially higher paying position.

What’s the duration of this course?

As is the case with the majority of our online diploma courses the program length is about twelve months, but that’s not to say that you couldn’t prolong your studying if it suits your schedule. There are no formal deadlines nor assessments, meaning that you could undertake the core units as quickly or as slowly as you want – and then receive your qualification in a period of time that suits you.

What many of our students find is that the ability to remain flexible with their submissions can help them to stay on top of their coursework and studies. We recommend at least twelve months, because we feel that it’s enough time for you to truly master the topic and become an expert in the field, but there’s no harm in taking up to two years if you’d prefer.

Most professional sectors encompass security and risk management in one form or another – and this can offer an astounding variety of options for when you are qualified. Some of the most popular roles include:

  • Security Advisors

Does this diploma feature any particular types of assessments?

As briefly mentioned above, this course is ideal for those on a tight or restricted schedule, in the sense that it is flexible enough to cater to a variety of lifestyles.

They can include written assessments, case studies and exams – all of which will be at the discretion of your tutor.
