Note: The time to complete a course has two aspects: (1) the duration, or time elapsed between the start and end of the course; (2) the total amount of time required to work through the course material. For example, a course starting in January and ending in July which requires 3 hours work per week, will have a duration of 6 months / 26 weeks and requires approximately 78 hours work to complete. The same course could conceivably be offered in a "compact" or "accelerated" format in 1 month with ~20 hours per week.
The duration of a Course Instance (i.e. the interval between start and end date) can be specified by using the duration property inherited from Event.
The time required to complete a Course can be specified using the timeRequired property inherited from Creative Work.
