When using the AEDC as a course package, the learner will first encounter a pre-assessment, which directs the
learner to the appropriate lesson based on their answers. The learner will then complete the lesson and a
post-assessment video case study for their cohort. If a learner passes all pre-assessments, they will go directly
to the video case study for their cohort.
The course takes approximately two hours to complete, and bookmarking is not available to save your spot.
Successful completion of the course results in the generation of a certificate of training.
The course has five lessons developed at five progressively more complex levels of learning. As a result, it is
possible for a learner to take the course five times over a five year period and receive a new learning
experience each year.
Individual lessons, facilitator guides, video case studies, and whiteboards are also available to support
instructors, leaders, or anyone who wants to download and use portions of the course for professional development
or other curriculum.
