We provide the online learning resources and you, as a coordinator, have access to all course materials and work submitted by your volunteers so you can track their progress and provide them with feedback.
Some coordinators choose to have volunteers complete the whole course, while others invite them to complete selected modules. If you would like your volunteers to receive a Certificate, please inform Befriending Networks once you have marked their work for the whole 10-module course.
