Recommended prior knowledge and skills
Access to this Unit will be at the discretion of the Centre, however it would be beneficial if candidates had achieved HN Unit: DH3F 34: Systems Development: Introduction. However, it is expected that a candidate is either studying this unit in conjunction with or following the completion of the HN Unit DH35 34 Computing: Planning. Alternatively candidates should have gained suitable work experience.
