- Once I pay for a course, how long is the course available?
Access to a course ends after 60 days from enrollment (payment) date. Completion data, exam scores and certificate of completion will not be available after 60 days. Print the completion certificate prior to that date.
2.Do I have to view the entire training course all at once?
No, you can stop anytime and restart the course anytime. The system will create a bookmark to remember where you left off. This allows you to start on the screen you last viewed.
3.Can I view the entire course (or any given lesson or page) again after I complete the course?
Yes, you are welcome to view any or all lessons and pages of the course as many times as you like.
4.Do I have to view the course in order or can I view the course lessons in any order?
You would take the course lesson by lesson as it was instructionally designed. You must complete all lessons in order presented before taking the final exam. Once you complete all lessons and the final exam, you can return to the course and view any lesson in any order and even retake the final exam.
5.Can multiple people share one login account? Can multiple people view the online course after setting up an accountand paying for any given course?
No, that would be a violation of the license agreement. And, the certificate of completion would contain only the name of the person listed on the account.
6.What information is on the certificate of completion?
After taking the challenge exam or the final exam, the certificate of completion contains the name of the course, your name (as entered when setting up the account), your most recent exam score, the date you took the exam and a place for trainee and supervisor signatures.

7.Can I reprint the certificate of completion and/or save it to a file on my computer?
Yes, any time prior to the 60 day expiration, you can re-enter the exam and reprint the certificate. You can also save the certificate to your computer (select "save to PDF" instead of a printer). The exam feedback report is not available for reprint. The exam feedback report can only be printed or saved immediately after you take the final exam. You can retake the final exam many times for new scores and new exam feedback.
9.What if I want to train and track my employees beyond 60 days?
