Course Content

All courses are designed to fall within one of three categories – basic, intermediate or advanced. Each course will clearly state the level for which it is intended. 

Basic courses are designed for attendees who are new to a skill, at entry level, or have had limited exposure to the subject matter. These courses are designed to introduce a participant to the subject matter and require no prior knowledge. 

Intermediate courses are designed for attendees who have already taken a basic course in the same subject matter or who have experience which has led to detailed knowledge of the subject matter. Any specific prior knowledge required for an intermediate course will be clearly stated in the course description and promotional materials.

Advanced level courses are designed for participants who have extensive knowledge of the subject matter and seek to learn about a broader range of application, develop more in-depth knowledge or explore a wider variety of skills. Advanced level courses will offer participants the opportunity to discuss their knowledge level and experience with SVA staff prior to registration to ensure compatibility. 

SVA is committed to providing the most current information through its various educational and training offerings. To this end, course materials are reviewed and updated regularly to reflect industry trends, as well as changes in the economic, legal and regulatory environments. Course materials are also reviewed regularly to assure that they are consistent with currently accepted standards relating to the course subject.
