What should I expect when taking a program? 

As the AIHR programs are built to be completely self-paced, the primary method of delivery is prerecorded video modules. This way you can build your development into a schedule that works the best for you. You will also have many reading materials in the form of articles, case studies, and more! 

For the technical modules, data sets will be provided so that you will be able to work hands-on in the programs along with the lessons. You will also be able to use these for your quizzes and assignments

For Certificate Programs, you will also have a full assessment which will combine the learning from the entire program into one Capstone Project.  

In order to see some of the core learning material, please take a look at these Preview Lessons. Here you will be able to see some of the raw lessons in action and an expectation of what the platform experience will be like!  


Quizzes & Assignments: What assessments are there throughout the programs?

For Certificate Programs there is a final project (which is graded) that you will need to complete in order to receive your certification. 
This is the Capstone Project.  

For stand-alone courses, there is no final examination.

For both types of programs, the following knowledge checks will be included: 

  • Quizzes are multiple-choice and you will receive an immediate grade back based on your responses. There will be a multitude of quizzes throughout the program. 

You will be able to retake quizzes at any time throughout the program.  

  • Assignments are more comprehensive, having you apply your skills in a hands-on, practical application. Assignments are purely for self-practice, and are not directly graded by the instructors. We highly recommend submitting your assignment directly in the program for peer-to-peer review.  

Capstone Projects: What is a Capstone Project, and how does it work? 

A Capstone Project is the final project for our Certificate Programs. You need a passing grade on this project in order to receive your Certification.   

With the capstone project, you will apply your learnings to complete a series of assignments. The project covers a wide range of topics included in the Certificate Programs, so that you can confidently initiate and participate in related projects in your daily work. 

These will be made of multiple parts: 

  1. Templates & Guides that you will be able to utilize in your work right away.  
  2. Interactive Case Studies: where you apply the skills that you have gained, as well as benchmark yourself/organization with others in the industry. 
  3. Exam: The exam portion of this project will be multiple choice and rated as Pass/Fail. 

Each Capstone Project is unique to the program that you are participating in. 

Additional Information: 

1. Do I need a live organization in order to complete the projects? 

  • No! Information required to complete the Capstone Projects will be included, and we highly recommend thinking back to organizations that you have worked with to think of how you could have applied these learnings in your daily work.  

    For the Technical aspects of the Projects, Datasets will be provided. 

2. What happens if I fail the project? 

  • In case you do not pass the Capstone Exam the first time around, you will be able to use the feedback to retake the exam.

3. Where can I claim my Certificate? 

  • You will be able to claim your certificate immediately upon passing the exam, no need to wait!  

Do I receive a certificate at the end of my program(s)?

Yes! You will receive a digital certificate that has a unique identification code, and that can be validated at any time for every program that you complete.   

Full Academy License

As a Full Academy License Learner, you will not be required to complete all programs before receiving your certificate. You will be able to claim an individual certificate for each program as you complete them. 

Certificate Programs 

In order to complete the program and claim your certificate, you will need to complete all assignments and pass each program's respective Capstone Project.  

You will be able to claim your certificate directly from the end of the Capstone Exam upon passing.
