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.
Self-Paced Tutorial courses are open enrollment, meaning you can enroll and start a course any time it is convenient. After enrolling, you will receive all lessons immediately and have three months access to complete the course content. Self-Paced Tutorial courses do not have extensions.
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 70.
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.
