Some online classes are offered in an accelerated format so you can complete two levels in one term. Each week a new module is made available indicating what you need to review for that week. Assignment deadlines are assigned at the beginning of the course and must be adhered to. This option is ideal for students who are not able to come in person, or like the flexibility of online, but still need assistance and structure.
In the classroom, all three levels of students are together. The instructor will provide different information and instruction to all three levels during this time. This option is ideal for learners who perform best when taught in person. You would complete one level per semester so you could finish the three levels within 3 semesters.
