Course/Curriculum Planning Timeline
The time needed to design, improve or accredit a course or whole program depends on the scope of the project and what steps are involved. A large curriculum overhaul may take 6-18 months, while a course re-design may take up to 3-6 months. We will lead you through all the necessary steps. Please contact us well in advance of any deadlines to create a work plan.
