About PLS Self-Paced Online Courses
Learning your way.
Self-paced courses are conducted in a 1:1 environment, where you are assigned to a dedicated facilitator who will provide feedback on assignments. You will work at your own pace provided that you successfully complete all assignments by the determined end date of the course. The facilitator will check in to ensure that you have adequate time to complete any assignments that may require implementation and/or reflection. A recommended pacing guide, for ease of staying on track, will be provided.
Self-paced courses are offered on a rolling basis year-round and typically take 45-90 days to complete. These courses begin on a Tuesday, which gives the facilitator a chance to contact you after you register to discuss course expectations as well as their role in the learning engagement. After registration, our team will contact you to finalize the registration and make sure they are ready to get started.
Please note, there are no prerequisites for our self-paced courses and they can be taken in any order. The numbering systems for these courses serve as a means to provide accurate course credit on transcripts.
