In addition to these primary target groups, profes- sionals with an equivalent university education can study the course. The online course is free of charge and in English comprising 14 chapters as well as four work- place cases. It is available in August 2017 at www.onhumanterms.org. The user is free to start and finish the online course independently of others and comprises to- tally approximately 20 hours of study. The user will get a certificate after finishing the complete course including self-correcting knowledge tests.
