"Do I have to finish a class in one sitting once I start?"
We sometimes get this question, and the answer is "Absolutely not." You can work whenever you have a few minutes to complete the reading, and then you can take the test as often as you need to reach the passing score. The testing system will immediately grade each test when you indicate that you are ready. If you need to suddenly quit in the middle of a test, the system provides you a "resumption code" you can use to continue where you stopped on that particular test (and if you lose the code, just contact me and I'll provide it). This type on online training is called "asynchronous," which simply means that you absolutely control your timing, and you do not have to be online at a particular date and time to take the class. It's all under your control. And if you have a question along the way, just send me an email. Couldn't be easier.
