Common Questions About The Course
When does the course start and finish?
Once enrolled you will have until June 30, 2021 to complete the assignments and receive a certificate.
Will I receive a certificate?
Participants who complete all online modules and the 8 assignments by June 30, 2021 will receive a certificate.
Is the course completely online and asynchronous?
Yes, the entire course is online and asynchronous - so it can be completed on your time at your convenience and pace. There are no live webinars, but there are many opportunities to ask questions to course facilitators and other students within the comment sections of the course.
We will also offer further support by holding 4 live group Q & A sessions in which our course facilitators will cover frequently asked questions (dates are TBD).
Our course facilitators will be available to answer questions until June 30, 2021.
How long will I have access to course materials?
Participants will continue to have access to all online content until March 1, 2022 and will always have a copy of the workbooks (which includes all of the theories, models, and frameworks; assignments; suggested readings and additional resources; and the activities). Therefore, the only element participants will lose access to on March 1, 2022 is the online videos.
What is the time commitment?
In terms of time commitment, we anticipate it is about 3 hours a module. Each module includes approximately 1 hour of videos (split into 3-7 videos), 1 hour of online activities, and 1 hour for the assignment. The assignments are about directly relating the content back to your own work; therefore, how much time can be quite variable depending on how much background work you choose to do.
What is the difference between Regular and Premium+ Enrollment?
Course components (i.e., Regular Enrollment) include: 10+ hours of informative video content, interactive activities, 2 extensive workbooks, assignments, networking opportunities; and a Certificate in the Foundations of Implementation, Spread, and Scale upon successful completion of the course.
Premium+ Enrollment provides personalized supports to help you apply what you've learned directly to your own work.
In addition to all course components above, you will receive a 30-minute coaching session with Dr. Julia Moore or Sobia Khan who will review your assignments in advance of the session and provide feedback targeted to your specific needs. Plus, we will provide you with a transcript of the session.
You will also receive a one-page summary of suggested theories, models, frameworks, tools, and resources created uniquely for you to enhance your specific project or initiative.
Are there student and LMIC discounts?
Yes, we aim to make Implementation, Spread, and Scale accessible to everyone. For Regular enrollment, we offer full-time students a 30% discount and individuals in low- and middle-income countries a 70% discount.

What kind of support will I receive from the course facilitators?

We will also be offering 4 live group Q&A sessions with our course facilitators. These sessions will be scheduled based on maximizing participant attendance.
