can lead to the Certificate in Apparel Product Development (APD)

Authority / Vocational Qualification - SET) based on the Telestia

Curriculum Authority) in the UK.
The aim is to give a solution to the skills lack, focusing on the market
needs, with a well planned and educationally simple approach.
What equipment do I need?
The training courses are based on eLearning packages developed by a partnership
of European Colleges and Universities, using interactive multimedia for
self-training on Pattern Construction.

part of the course.
Will the technology be too difficult for me?
The eTelestia training packages are based on simulating the processes involved
in pattern construction, design and production using animation,
graphics and video.
Very little text is used as a supplementary aid.
The courses are set out in the simplest way, so you will only have to concentrate
on your lessons and not on how to use the computer.
