Step 4 Sit Back and Wait for Your Certificate
After you've completed the reading and passed the test, you're finished with the class. We'll now automatically do the following:
1. Make sure you've answered "Yes" to the test question, "Did you complete all reading material for this class?"
2. Make sure that your registration process is complete; and,
3. Make sure our records accurately reflect your accomplishment.
When these three steps are completed, we'll automatically send your Certificate of Completion via email, usually within 24 hours. The date on your Certificate will be the first date that you passed the test (some participants like to keep taking the test until it's perfect, and that's fine. But we'll use the earliest successful date for your Certificate.
