Q1. Can I combine more than one course?
A1. Yes. You can combine any of the courses above. This means that you can use your full allowance to book more courses under one claim.
Q2. Are combination courses set or can I mix and match?
A2. You can mix and match to get the most out of your funding.
Q3. Do courses need to run sequentially and be within a set period?
A3. Not necessarily. However, to enable you to get the best benefit from your ELCAS allowances it is advisable to book your courses within the same ELC credit period.
Q4. If I book two courses, is it important which course I take first?
A4. No, but sometimes there are advantages to do so, for example: PRINCE2 before a PMQ. PFQ before a PMQ. Other wise its not important.
Q5. Is it advisable to book accommodation for the course?
A5. If you live within 1 hour’s commute of the training venue it is not necessary to book hotel accommodation for the duration of the course. However you need to allow plenty of time to complete evening homework and consolidate your learning. For ELCAS delegates HMS Collingwood is very close.
Q6. Are food costs part of the course cost?
A6. No. ELCAS do not pay for the food element of a course.
Q7. Can receipts for the above be billed to the candidate?
A7. Yes. All invoices can be billed as required
Q8. Can the cost of the combination courses be expanded over a two different ELC credit periods?
A8. Yes. Provided the first part of the combination course is taken in the first credit period and the next course is taken at the earliest convenient time, then there is not a problem.

Q10. Will I get penalised if I am sent on deployment at short notice and therefore need to change course dates?

Q11. Do I have to book courses through the CTP?
A11. No. You can book directly through IPSO FACTO.
