A CertHE in forensic road collision investigation
What is it?
A Certificate in Higher Education or CertHE is a Level 4 award. It is awarded to students who complete 120 credits at Level 4 but who do not continue on to complete a Foundation degree. Pass, Merit, or Distinction classifications may be awarded based on the final 60 credits of study.
- If you hold a UCPD you have already completed 60 credits. You need one more year to complete the CertHE.
Most of the course is studied by distance learning however you will need to come to the training centre on a number of occasions. Download the HE Information Pack from Quick Links to the right. It will give you information on all the modules, and the amount of time you will need to spend with us at South Cerney.
With the exception of a few phase tests at the end of residential sections all the coursework is completed either at home or at work. There are deadlines for coursework which you will need to meet. Make sure you read about them when you start.
