This course is six-months in length and can be completed in as little as two months. The student will spend an average of 4 to 6 hours a week working on this course. If you spend 2-3 hours a week on the course you will complete it in six months; 4-6 hours a week, you will be done in four months; and, of course, 6-8 hours a week, the course is done in two months. Scheduling yourself is the key!
Part 3 of the Analysis and Skills Mentoring Program has been designed to prepare you for the challenges and high standards required of a professional in this field. Remember that the term "professional" includes those that want to achieve a professional standard of excellence in the quality of their family genealogy as well as those in the profession.
This course is a continuation of the types of problem solving exercises completed in Part 2 and all those interested in fine-tuning their abilities will benefit from this in-depth study. Constructing a proof argument and participating in group discussions of a scholarly article are some of the program assignments. The reading materials covered in the previous courses, Parts 1 & 2, will be referenced as well as some new information.
You will be required to submit some assignments by uploading them to a special area of our database which will be marked by your instructor or a professional genealogist, the results of which will be discussed during your consultations. During this course, you will be provided with two individual appointments scheduled at appropriate intervals for this purpose. Any questions or concerns you may have can be reviewed at that time.
Although this is indicated as a 26-week course, this simply means that you will have up to six months from the date you start this course to complete and submit the assignments and have the two private consultations with your instructor.
If this course is included in a registered package, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself, from the beginning, with the requirements for completing this course. As you work your way through the other courses, this will heighten your awareness of the relevance of the knowledge required to successfully complete the Analysis and Skills Mentoring Program.
