There is no specific time-frame or a fixed month or a period to enroll one’s name in this online programme. One could register at any point of time in the year after the formal launch. Similarly, one can leave or exit at any point of time from this online course, or stagger one’s study in different segments of time, subject to a maximum of 2 years from the month of registration.
However, if one wants to get the Diploma Certificate, one has to remain in the program for at least six months and also complete the necessary assignments during this period. Only after a period of six months can one appear at the end- terminal Diploma examination, in all four courses. Otherwise, the usual pace of the course will require a canditate to take the terminal examinations for the first two papers within 16 to 24 weeks, and the next two papers within another term (of four to six months).
