Each course runs for two (2) weeks, starting on a Wednesday and ending the second Wednesday after that. This gives you 2 weekends to catch up in case your working week gets too hectic.

There are no specific times that you have to be online. It is suggested that you access the course regularly during the 2 weeks, so that you will be in sync with the other learners in your class, and having meaningful discussions with them on the discussion boards.
If you are new to eLearning, it might initially take you about 10 to 12 hours over the 2 weeks to complete the course. Our more seasoned learners can get through a course in 6 hours. Generally speaking, the content in each eCornell course is equivalent to the content quantity that you will find in a 2 to 3 days physical workshop or seminar.

Most of the courses will have a class starting every month. Some courses have two classes each month, and a few courses have classes in alternate months.
After you have paid and enrolled, you can select your class dates for each courses, and plan your entire certificate. In case something comes up along the way, and you will not be able to attend any particular class, you need to give us 48 hours’ notice before the class starts, to change to a later class date.
You have up to 2 years to complete your certificate. The majority of the certificates are 6 courses, and these can be completed rather comfortably within 3 months.
Many of our courses are part of more than one certificate program. So when a student enrols into one of those courses that is in multiple certificates, we list all the possible certificates onto the student profile.
It gives the student an opportunity to track how much they have done towards the second certificate if they decided to go ahead and pursue it.
