Delivery Methodology – Blended Learning

IACCM Advanced Practitioner

The IACCM has recently reviewed the process of gaining Practitioner and Expert status. Participants and required to undertake the IACCM Skills Assessment to evaluate their previous and current experience. The next step is to undertake the Advanced Award course. This is an “online” course only resourced by IACCM. The course contains 3 main parts Personal, Business Acumen and Technical, There are 30 units of study. The approximate online study time is 30 hours. Normally participants would be advised to target 1 unit per week, thus the average time is approx. 6 months, but this is flexible and is driven by the learning speed of individual participants. Our offer is the contract with IACCM to deliver the online course and in additional to provide a series of supporting workshop to assist participants, provide tutoring, review materials and assist with assessments. Based upon our experience we would recommend six support days as our part of the blended learning approach.
