Tools | Academic Management | Course Manager | Maintain Course | New and is made up of seven panels, you will need to complete Panels.

1. Duration and Tolerance -This panel is a new addition to the SIMS summer 2012 release and
displays the course duration, continuity tolerance and completion tolerance. The default settings from the Course Manager settings screens will be present by default but settings can be changed for individual courses, if required.

2 – Basic -This panel holds basic name and code information related to the course and settings related to automated updates. It also holds information on the latest QAN web site (QWS) QAN along with a free text panel which enables the recording of any relevant information.

3 – Examination – Previously the link between a course and an exam was made in Examinations Organiser but now this is completed within Course Manager. The link is still visible via Examinations Organiser but is read-only. The examination panel ignores the date filter for the course.

Schools should link each course to an appropriate award in Examinations Organiser. Once the exam award is linked any appropriate certification elements are displayed in the certification elements panel. Only one
exam award can be active at any one time. The exam board AO QAN is displayed along with any certification elements.
