The Certificate in Validation program uses several different types of assignment. Your course leader will contact you via the online learning platform or email to let you know when assignments have been released, and what the submission deadline is.
The assignments will sound extremely daunting before you start the program, however, they are very manageable and between the program content and additional research, you will be able to answer all of the assignment.
Module 1 – the assignment is comprised of 6 written questions which require answers that will take approximately 10 pages in total (not per question).
Module 2 – both assignments are case study based. After session 3, a 30% assignment is issued. You’ll be asked to review a document and apply your own knowledge to it. Your answer should be an essay of approximately 1,000 words. After session 8 you are given a 70% assignment which will require an essay of approximately 3,000 words.
Module 3 – this is a workshop driven module where you will develop a P&ID and then back-engineer it into a URS (User Requirement Specification). This will be used to identify the key process measurements that will form the basis of the Performance Qualification (PQ) test script.
Graded assignments are to be submitted via email AND hardcopy. You should also make sure you keep a copy for your own records.
Assignments will be reviewed at various points throughout the program and given a provisional result. All results remain provisional until the Technological University Dublin exam board has received and reviewed your complete course file.
