You can study from as little as 2 hours a week, or however many hours you choose, or even full time if you wish to complete the course in less than 3 months. You can study more one week, less the next – flexible and easy to manage your study times to fit in with your lifestyle.
Range of topics
There are 15 different units in this course covering a wide range of skills and knowledge required for a typical PA role.

Some units are small which you can complete in a few hours with others requiring a bit more thinking and planning.
