I thought I would share this here. I know a couple of people who have done this course and despite it being HARD (they say) they found it very gratifying.

Perhaps some members of the LAS might also be interested. It is free.

Looks like the course I did a few years ago - but I had to pay for - with the UK Distance Learning group of UNI's.

As it's free I may well sign up for it as there is always something new and will be interesting to see the level expected from a US provider. Anybody else having a go ?
