Course Overview

Students completing this program will gain a fundamental understanding of the biological principles and the properties of life, considering the structure and function of plants and animals, their relationship to various organisms, to each other and the environment they inhabit. Taking an in-depth look at cell biology principles, reproduction, development and growth, students will begin to understand the mechanics of evolution, inheritance and genetics. Students will learn the various ways for classifying different organisms, animals, and plants, as well as the human body, the characteristics and distinctions between them as well as the way in which all of these organisms contribute to the overall environment.

This program also provides an overview of the anatomical structures and physiology of the human body. Each body system is discussed in terms of the major anatomical structures and functions including how each system participates in homeostasis of the body. In addition, the program discusses selected major pathologies, including disease definitions and causes, signs and symptoms, diagnostic procedures, and possible treatments. Finally, the program will present common issues and changes that occur in each body system through the lifespan.

Course Description

Biology is the study of life from the smallest of organisms no larger than single cells to the most complex plants and animals that make up the world we live in. As part of biology, anatomy refers to the structures associated with the human body and physiology covers the function of each of these structures. The human body is one of the most complicated organisms on the planet, yet despite the fact that each of us owns one of these complex machines, very few of us understand its complexities, functions and capabilities. Like all living organisms, in order for human bodies to work properly, all of its parts must function as optimally as possible all the time. For any individuals working in health careers, a full understanding of all life around us including our own is fundamental to success on the job.

FAQs

What are my payment options?

Click the Financing link at the top of this page for financing information.

What is difference between a certificate and a certification?

By successfully completing a course through one of our college or university partners the student is awarded a Certificate of Completion from the institution. If there is a state or national exam that the course is preparing a student for, the proper certifying body will be indicated and that association will proctor and award any type of certification. This is the studentís responsibility, although ECA is here to help guide our students in the right direction.

Does this course translate in to college credit?

Through our college and university partners, ECA offers non-credit certificate programs.

How long do access to my complete my course?

Access will begin on your start date and end on your end date unless otherwise specified. If you are falling behind in your course please contact an Education Consultant to talk about your options.

When are the course start dates?

The course start dates are determined by the student due to open-enrollment.

Is the Certification exam included in the course?

The certification exam is not included in the cost of the course unless otherwise specified in the course education and training plan.
