LUTP self-study material

    The learning topics are grouped into seven Clusters. Each Cluster is comprised of three to four Modules, each one covering a learning topic. You are required to study all 24 Modules in the seven Clusters. You can access the study materials by clicking on the topic links below. When you click on a link, you will open a PDF presentation on the selected topic. You can read the presentation on your computer or print the presentation for personal reading.

    The PowerPoint presentation is saved as a PDF in the notes format. One slide is shown per page. A copy of the slide is shown on the top half of the page. Extensive commentary about the slide is provided on the bottom half of the page to assist you in gaining further insight when viewing the presentation.

    Each PowerPoint presentation begins with a short exercise. There is no right or wrong answer — the purpose of the exercise is to get you thinking about the topic. You should spend about five minutes on the exercise before continuing to the learning topic materials.
