A module introduces you to and trains you in a specific topic of work and health. Each module comprises of a preparatory homework called “pre-assignment”, a campus phase, as well as a concluding exam. Each module is provided by a module manager, who is in charge of the module's content, pre-assignment and exam.

Module examination and assessment
