Frequently Asked Questions

No. Our courses are entirely online. You can work on course material wherever and whenever you have Internet access.
While content will vary depending on the subject, all courses feature instructional text and a final exam. Many courses also include supplemental learning material, such as assignments, quizzes, audio, video, infographics, and hands-on labs.
Neither. Our courses were designed for flexible enrollment, meaning you can enroll any time of the year. However, courses may have a specific session start date.
Yes. If a course has a session start date, this is an “Instructor-Led” course. Courses without a session start date are “Self-Paced Tutorial” courses.
Instructor-Led courses operate on rolling monthly basis, with four available start dates. After enrolling, you will receive new lessons on a set schedule over a six-week period. Two lessons are released each week — one on Wednesday and one on Friday. The final exam is released consecutively with the 12th lesson. You will then have two weeks to complete the exam.
At the end of the two-week final exam period, an additional 10-day extension is automatically provided to finish any remaining course material. No additional extensions are provided beyond these 10 days.
If you have course content-related questions, Instructor-Led courses feature a “Discussion Area” where you can engage with your instructor. Any questions regarding drops, transfers, refunds, progress reports, or password and email changes are handled by our Student Support department.
Your course grade depends solely on passing a final multiple-choice exam on the first attempt. While lessons include assignments and quizzes, they are not mandatory and will not impact your grade. The minimum passing score for the final exam is 65.
While you have one attempt to pass the final exam, you do have the option to save, review, and even print your answers prior to submitting. If you do not pass the final exam, you can contact the Student Support department for available options.
When you successfully complete the course by passing the final exam, your Certificate of Completion will be available for download in your online classroom.
