Modules do not need to be taken in order. However, module three must be successfully completed before taking module four. To obtain the diploma, all four modules must be completed within three years from completion of the first module. After completion of all four modules students are eligible to apply for the ASTMH Certificate of Knowledge Examination (provided additional examination application criteria are met).

Quizzes or assignment are due on a weekly basis; students should have dedicated time to study for the course material in order to be successful.
Note: All students must take the final exam on the scheduled date. If a student has a scheduling conflict with the scheduled exam date and time, the student must provide written proof of conflict and get it approved by the course director to take the exam at an agreed scheduled time. No other exceptions will be made regarding taking the exam early.
