A course booking provides you with a three week time frame to complete the course, repeating Modules where necessary, and to use the "FreePlay" Mode, which allows you to practice freely on the manufacturer's original, type-approved, software. The courseware includes a final test of no more than 1 hour duration, which can also be repeated, leading to an individual certificate.
