It is highly recommended that participants attend Modules 1, 2 and 3 in their sequential order. We are unable to accommodate requests for advanced standing. Participants must complete all 3 modules including all quizzes and exams in order to be awarded a Certificate in Process Engineering for Control Practitioners. In special circumstances a participant may complete a certificate module outside the regular program schedule on a self-study basis. Application for self-study must be sent in writing to the Program Director.
