Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses products are hosted securely with a licensed Moodle Partner. Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses has a service level agreement with the Moodle Partner that states that the hosting environment shall normally be available on a 24×7 basis with a 99.8% uptime guarantee. This excludes scheduled downtime that is occasionally required for upgrades and is agreed with Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses in advance.

7 – Training Manuals and Certification
Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses use a computerised education system called a “Moodle” (we call this the Learners Portal) for all courses. This system is used across all education levels and is easy to use. You will need to have basic computer skills to use this system.

The terminology used within any the Anatomy & Physiology Online manuals and courses is not designed to cause offence or upset to anyone. The terminology used was acceptable at the time of course production and passing the accreditation process.  However, in these changing times, some names or language used may potentially now be classed as offensive. Anatomy & Physiology Online works tirelessly to make sure that our manuals and course work is inclusive to all groups. Anatomy & Physiology Online, unfortunately, cannot be held responsible for terminology which may now offend. Some vocabulary is required to explain different forms, methodologies or conditions. This is out of Anatomy & Physiology Online control as it may be an accreditation or learning outcome requirement. At no time is any offence meant against any individual or group.

7.1 – Training Manuals: Will be downloadable to each learner via their online Learning Portal. These manuals will be available to download for 60 days once your course has started. It will be the learner’s responsibility to download and save their training manuals within this time. Manuals can be read on all devices.

7.2 – Certification: Certification for all FHT courses is sent via email. This is sent to you once you have met the learning outcomes and final assessments. We aim to have all the certification sent to you within seven working days.

7.3 – Certification will be issued under the name you gave at the time of booking. Please make sure you keep copies of manuals and certificates as duplicates will not be issued.

7.4 – ITEC and VTCT can take three months for certification to be issued. This is not down to Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses.

8 – Cancellations
Cancellations will only be dealt with during office hours Monday to Friday. 9 am till 5 pm, excluding bank holidays. If you email or telephone out of these office hours, the cancellation will be dealt with on the next working day. This will be the date the cancellation was received and will be the date the admin office will work from. Once you have received the online course you have a 14-day cooling-off period. However, once you have logged onto the course Portal, no refund will be issued, even if this falls within the first 14 days.

9 – Course Timeframe
All online courses must be completed within 12 months this includes the final assessment.

10 – Marking Your Coursework
All submitted work is marked by a qualified Assessor and monitored by an IQA (Internal Quality Assurance). We aim to mark all coursework within twenty-one working days of submission. Your Learners Portfolio is marked continually during your course, so please upload work as you complete it, instead of uploading a large number of documents all at once. If there is going to be a delay in marking, we will endeavour to publish this information beforehand within the Learners Portal.

11.1 – Online Assessments
Each course has a final assessment which is completed via the online system.

The system will choose the theory questions and labelling questions for your assessment from a question bank, so we are not able to advise what will be in the assessment.

You cannot take the final assessment until you have met all the learning outcomes required to take the course. These are clearly explained in all our courses.

It is the learns responsibility to make sure that all coursework is saved and backed up. Lost coursework is the reasonability of the learner, not Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses. If you are completing your assessment with another ITEC or VTCT assessment centre, you must take your original Pathology assignments with you on your assessment day, failure to do this would mean you can’t sit your assessment.

11.2 – To complete the ITEC or VTCT Level 3 Anatomy & Physiology and Pathology course you must complete the online Pathology course and complete the Anatomy and Physiology Portfolio. This equates to 94 hours of learning.

ITEC and VTCT qualification exam have to be invigilated by an assessor and we are one of the few training schools who meet the requirements to allow you to complete your online assessment online in your own home and country. However, if you wish you can always come to our training venue in Brighton to complete the assessment. To be able to complete your final assessment online, you must have access to our assessment program called “Zoom”.

Final assessment dates will be given to you once you have reached the needed learning outcomes and when you advise us that you are ready. You must notify us of your chosen exam date at least eight weeks before the final assessment exam date. Please note that if you are not taking your final assessment at Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses, Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses cannot be responsible for the assessment date given to you or the timeframe by other training establishments.

If you are taking Anatomy and Physiology as a general knowledge subject this does not need to be witnessed by the assessor.

11.3 – Please note that when you are completing your online assessments, you must make sure that you have a good Wi-Fi, 3g or 4g connection. If the signal keeps breaking, then your assessment will be cancelled, and you will have to reschedule your assessment. This will be classed as a failed assessment. We advise the use of a computer with a webcam to complete your final assessment, we do not advise trying to complete your assessment on a smartphone or tablet. 

11.4 – Please note that a final assessment can only be taken once, an administration fee of £45 will be charged per additional assessment. Please note that this fee will be £100 for an ITEC or VTCT qualification. Missed assessment will also be charged with the fees listed above. Assessments will not be permitted to take place until all outstanding invoice have been paid. 

11.5 – All our courses are invigilated by an assessor to maintain the quality of the course and the qualification. Course certificates are normally issued within 5 working days after completing your final assessment. Office hours are Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm, excluding bank holidays. Please note that ITEC and VTCT can take three months for certification to be issued. This is not down to Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses.
