Can I swap my course dates?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change and swap dates. If you do not do your course in the dates allocated, you cannot get EPV approval. All courses are 2 weeks, as per DES rules. We cannot make exceptions.
Can I do my EPV courses at the same time?
According to DES rules, participants must completed one course at a time as exact dates of course completion will be noted on certificates.
Why can't we do more than one?
Just not at the same time!
If your EPV certificate dates overlap, they may not be accepted.
Teachers usually do one EPV course over 3 days and then move onto their second or third course.
