World Campus has an open enrollment. All courses are self-study, allowing you to enroll at any time as well as complete the course at your pace.

All courses are fully online. Each course is made up of a series of modules. Within each module you are expected to complete 6 online activities which include the following:

Module Overview
At the beginning of each module, there is course Overview. It contains a module breakdown of requirements which you can download for easy reference.

Each module contains a module seminar. These are a series of self-paced, interactive sessions. Each seminar is voiced and participants can click Pause at any time, and replay a previous slide by using the PowerPoint navigation system.

Participants are required to complete a quiz or knowledge check within each module. Participants have two attempts to pass each quiz with a passing grade of 70%.

Skill Builder Activities
The skill builder activities allow participants to put theory into practice and build on the knowledge and skills gained from the seminars. There is a corresponding Skill Builder for each module. Each Skill Builder is worth 5 points. Participants receive 5 points for completing them and 0 points for an incomplete activity.

Online Discussions
The discussion forum allows participants to reflect on their experiences and share there experiences with other participants and AHA's online monitors. There is a corresponding Discussion for each module and they are worth 5 points each. Students are required to post a reply and one response per discussion in order to earn the 5 points.

"a ha!" Moments
At the end of each module, participants are asked to watch what we call an "a ha!" Moment. What is an "a ha!" Moment? It is a mini lesson within the lesson that allows you to reflect on what you have learned and inspires and motivates you to continue to embrace the right service attitude.

Our online courses are self - study allowing participants to complete a course at their own time and place. It is estimated that each module takes 2-3 hours so a course that has 8 modules would take approximately 16-24 hours. Participants are able to begin a module and come back to it later if they need more time.

All courses are fully online and do not require a textbook. Any materials participants need are provided within the course.
