A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

A well-rounded course. Touched on many of the essential aspects of business. Even though I have been in business for over 20 years, I found myself learning something new with each lesson.
Great course, outstanding supplementary material that went well with each lesson, and very knowledgeable instructor.
I use the material in this course on a daily basis and was able to obtain even more valuable information.
I want to thank Mr. Swaim for the course. It has been a great experience for me having been out of school for a long time. This was an eye opener for me if I would pursue my masters. Thank you very much.
Mr. Swaim had terrific link sites for continued reading, I really liked the course and will be taking Mastery of Business Applications. The course was perfect for the Business Beginnner, I felt challenged, but not overwhelmed.
Thank you. Great course, very helpful to a small business owner.
This class was the perfect avenue for learning business basics on my time. I was challenged at times, entertained other times, but always took away useful information from every lesson.
This course was great! I loved reading the lessons and learning new subjects that I hadn't gone over in school. The quizzes were very helpful too. I would totally take another class with Mr. Swaim.
This is a great course for getting a broad overview of several areas of business fundamentals. I found all of the content to be useful, without getting into too many specifics. Thank you!
Tony Swaim has provided me with an excellent and practical concept of business fundamentals. I would like to commend him for a job well done.
