1. Can I register for programs if I am an international student?
Yes, because ed2go programs are online you never have to actually travel to the school. Most schools offer telephone or online registration.
2. How long does it take to complete a program?
All of our programs are self-paced and open enrollment, which means you can start and finish the program at your own pace. Upon registering, you're given an initial six months to complete this program. Should you need more time beyond the six months, an extension of 90 days is available with a fee of $90.
3. Do I have to buy additional materials?
4. Can I get financial assistance?
ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards will pay for qualified students to take our courses.
5. What happens when I complete the program?
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate of completion.
6. Am I guaranteed a job?
ed2go programs will provide you with the skills you need to obtain an entry-level position in most cases. We don't provide direct job placement services, but our facilitators and career counselors will help you build your resume and are available to give advice on finding your first job. Facilitators will also be available to use as a professional reference upon completion of the program. Potential students should always do research on the job market in their area before registering.
7. Who will be my instructor?
Each student is paired up with a facilitator for one-on-one interaction. The facilitator will be available (via e-mail) to answer any questions you may have and to provide feedback on your performance. All of our facilitators are successful working professionals in the fields in which they teach.

12. Does taking this program make me certified?
No. Students wishing to become a Certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE) must meet certain eligibility requirements and pass an examination offered by the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC). Additional fees apply.
13. How is this program different from the Certified Indoor Air Quality Manager (CIAQM)?
The CIE program is designed for consultants who may respond to specific, complex indoor air problems, without having to manage long-term relationships with the building occupants. The CIAQM Program is designed for individuals working each day in the same facility in service or management to its occupants.
14. This program prepares students for the CIE and CIEC certifications. What is the difference between those?
The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) has two levels of certification, each based on the student's experience. The Certified Indoor Environmentalist (CIE) requires two years of field experience conducting indoor air quality investigations. The Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC) requires eight years of experience on a broad range of indoor air quality topics.
Post-secondary degrees in science and engineering may reduce the required experience requirements. For a more detailed explanation of the experience needed to become certified, please contact ACAC. As a reminder, there are no experience requirements to take this online program; these requirements only pertain to those who wish to obtain the optional certification.
