I feel to be lucky to attend this Certificate In Detention Reviews being taught by Raj Napal. He shared his extensive and previous work experiences along with teaching which should be the actual method. Theoretical knowledge can be obtained by the books ourselves but Raj implemented the knowledge very expertly through his practical knowledge. Overall it was a very extraordinary and excellent learning experience with Raj and I wish every instructor followed the same strategies as him. During this course, he actually prepared us for the presentation in IRB. It was a great experience being a beginner with zero practical experience.

Technical Requirements

Live Online Students

Ashton College offers education for all students with a unique online learning approach. A synchronous learning component provides real time interaction and immediate feedback. We use real time interactive sessions, breakout rooms, and screen-sharing. An asynchronous learning component allows students to work at their own pace. Our asynchronous learning materials include recorded real time lectures, online readings, and discussion forums. We encourage students, if possible, to use both components so as to enjoy interactivity and community of real-time learning as well as studying at their own pace. This approach ensures students have support and resources to achieve their educational goals.

For synchronous sessions, students need to have a fully functional computer system with a webcam, speakers and microphone or headset and headphones, along with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Though the classes can be accessed using smartphones and tablets, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for a better learning experience.

This program/course does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. As such, PTIB did not review the program/course.
