This is a self-paced course that and can be saved and resumed during any point. Assessment question and answer sessions during the course monitor the students’ progress, and support the student’s progression, and learning objectives. There is a test at the end of each course. The questions on the test are completely based on the materials covered in the specific course. The student must get 70% or better to pass the test. If 70% is not achieved, then the training system automatically takes the student back through the course to review the materials that were missed on the test. The student is then returned to the test to try again for a second attempt if needed. 


 All courses are completely online. Nothing will be shipped.

    I loved the practical suggestions, such as the three examples used, "I like me" Heart and stars and I will use that example and the other two given in my classrom to build self esteem with my school age students.

    Good Training

    Posted by Shawna on 19th Mar 2014

    I enjoyed learning the indicators of low self-esteem. Also knowing what I should work on as a provider; intently paying attention to children when they talk with me, instead of just listening when I am busy about the workplace or classroom.

    I have taken other classes from you and have enjoyed them. If I have questions it is nice to know that there is some one available to answer them. I plan to take other courses with you in the future. Thanks
