  • Can I take this course at my own pace?

    Once you enroll in the course you will have 24/7 access, so you can work on it any time of day.

  • Do I have to take the whole course in one session?

    The course is designed in a way that allows you to start and stop as desired. Once you resume the course it will automatically pick up again where you left off.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    From the moment you enroll the course content will be available to you for a 60day period. Just like any other course you take in college or university there is a start date and an end date.

  • Are there quizzes?

    There is a short quiz at the end of each course. The quiz requires an 80% passing grade but don’t worry if you don’t pass the first time you are able to retry again until you do. Why do we include the quiz – It helps to reinforce the learning and our goal is not only that that you learn the skills and strategies, but you practice what we teach you in your everyday interactions with others.

  • Do I get a certificate of completion?

    Yes, after successfully passing the quiz at the end of the course you can proudly print and display your certificate of completion.
