What Happens After Ordering
To Access Your Courses: Inside your account, go to the tab "Course Study Material." If you do not readily see this tab, click "My Account" first, then you will see "Course Study Material."
You will use this material as a guide to take and pass the exam. Each course has its own online exam, so after you have read through the material, you must pass the associated online exam to get credit for taking the course.
To access the online exam inside your account, click "Take Exam." You may save your work without losing it. Once you successfully pass the course exam, you will have access to your certificate immediately. This certificate is your proof of completing the entire course.
You have one year (365 days) from the purchase date to complete your course(s); however, if your renewal is due prior to this date, you may need to complete them before the one-year expiration.
After your course expires, you will no longer have access to the course. You have the option within 60 days of the expiration to purchase a 6-month extension of time, which will reactivate the course with a new expiration of 6 months from the date of extension. You can purchase this within your account or by giving us a call within 60 days after expiration.
