    With an Online Academy subscription you are allowed full access to all courses you see in the catalog. You can take as many as you want, as often as you want. Please do take in to consideration that generally it is more effective to focus on one course at a time, finish it and then continue.

Personal Assistent and reminder settings

  • What is the personal assistant?
    Our assistant helps you achieve your goals. When you are very disciplined and like learning on your own pace, you can switch off all reminders. When you tend to forget to take your course, set your reminders to more frequent so we can help you to make progression.
  • How can I switch off/on reminders?
    Log in to Online Academy and you will end up on the ‘dashboard’ page. Scroll down the page to find the personal assistant. There you will see several switches. The top switch controls all others.
