Learning Methods

We have 3 learning methods that you can choose from that suits your own needs:
  • Online
    Access your course materials anytime or anywhere by visiting our custom learning management system, where you will be able to download your course notes, complete your online quizzes, submit your assignments, receive your assignment feedback and ask your tutor any questions.
  • E-Learning
    Similar to online courses, except all course materials are mailed to you on a USB instead of accessed on the internet. Assignment submission is through the online assignment submission system.
  • Correspondence
    This is the traditional method of completing courses at ACS. All course materials are posted to you. Assignment submissions can be posted or e-mailed to us. You can, of course, still e-mail or telephone us at any time for assistance regarding your course.

Discounts from online courses are not displayed until you click the "enrol now" button.
