Learners on such courses must be registered with Open College Network West Midlands within 60 working days of the start of the course.

 

Failure to register learners on short or long courses within the timescales indicated:

In all circumstances learners must be registered prior to the end of their course.

Centres should note that where learners are registered more than once to the same unit/course/ programme they will be charged for each registration.
