In today’s time, from common household chemicals to foods and drugs, organic chemistry plays a vital role in developing most of the chemical parts of our daily life. To understand and gain a better understanding of organic chemistry, our Organic Chemistry Demystified Training will be the perfect choice for you.

The Organic Chemistry Demystified Training course provides all the necessary information about organic chemistry to gain expertise in organic chemistry. Our learners will get practical as well as theoretical knowledge of it. Topics covered include organic molecules, geometry, nomenclature, conformations, substitution, and elimination along with detailed narration.

The Organic Chemistry Demystified Trainingcourse is a self-paced course, meaning the learner can complete the course at his suitable schedule. Our course is split into [number] units with many short modules each under it. We provide professional certificates to the learners after the successful completion of their course.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
