Looking for the perfect foundation to further your studies or career aspirations in chemistry? Then this Diploma in Basic Chemistry – Level 3 is all the certification you need to bring your goals to life. This course will extensively cover the basics of chemistry to help you easily grasp the more advanced aspects of it in future. Since chemistry is a part of our daily lives, this course is also ideal if you wish to study more about the environment around you.
This insightful course will relay the fundamentals of basic chemistry such as sub disciples, chemical compounds and molecules. You will get to discover about energy, reaction, acidity, basicity and alkalinity, followed by lectures on the principles of modern chemistry, substances versus mixtures, Phase and bonding. This course will also discuss about PH, its definition and calculations to identify chemicals using them.
Chemistry mainly focuses on the chemicals and chemical reactions around us. Therefore, this course has dedicated a few modules that will educate you on the types of chemicals, main group elements and Lanthanides. This course also considers your health and safety while handling chemicals, which is why the course curriculum will walk you through the laboratory safety practices and methods and the Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP).
The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink* has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.
The course itself has been designed by South London College to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
