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 was able to understand causes of childhood anger, ways children respond, and address the adverse effects anger can have on children. It will be useful with the children in my classroom.

    Loved that the course was self paced

    Posted by Megan on 24th Jan 2014

    Having both the option of having the course read aloud or reading it by myself at my own pace, and being able to review the material covered at will.
    The short quizzes helped me maintain focus during the reading.
    Having these courses readily available to me when I am able to complete the training is very helpful to me.
