Online Assessment Information

There are a total of fifteen (15) lectures delivered over the three (3) modules of the CEPIA Graduate Diploma of Cardiac Electrophysiology. Each module consists of a series of lectures, each of which has an accompanying online assessment. Each assessment will be timed and consist of a number of multiple-choice questions. Assessment time limits and numbers of questions are detailed in the tables below

Every assessment must be completed.

The lectures dealing with cardiac anatomy and physiology; cardiac pharmacology; principles of ablation; and mechanisms of arrhythmias contain knowledge which has been embedded in the units of competency that make up the Graduate Diploma. Satisfactory completion of the assessments associated with these lectures will gain credit towards various units of competency as listed in the following table.

Each assessment will be available for the entire month as listed above. Assessments may be sat at any time during the month, but the due date for assessment completion is midnight on the final date shown. Each assessment must be sat and completed in a single, uninterrupted time period.

In order to receive a Graduate Diploma you must successfully complete all fifteen (15) online assessment activities to the required level of performance in the allocated time period as detailed above. If you fail to meet the required level of performance you may apply to resit an assessment in the Assessment Resit time period (fees detailed below).

Unsatisfactory performance in an assessment does not preclude you from attending future modules. You are still able to attend future modules regardless of how you perform in these assessments.
 

Note that to receive the Graduate Diploma you must also complete all online assessments and all workbook activities successfully.
 

The course is designed so that all three modules and their respective assessments can be completed within a 12 month period, however assessment deferrals and/or extensions may be requested up to a maximum of 5 years after course enrolment. After this time if a student still has assessments outstanding and wishes to continue on with the course additional fees will be incurred.

If they do not wish to continue after this time they will be issued with the relevant “Statement of Attainment” or “Statement of Attendance” for the relevant Units satisfactorily attended and/or completed.


 

Late Penalty :
Due to administrative requirements associated with the marking of online assessments, a fee of AUD $50 will be incurred for every calendar day an assessment is overdue (up to a maximum of AUD $500).

Online Assessment Re-sit Fee :
The fee to resit any online assessment is AUD $100 per assessment.
