  • This course is separated into 8 subject sections, with an introduction and final examination. Following each section, there will be a short question and answer session.

    You must answer all the questions correctly to proceed to the next section. If you do not answer the questions correctly at the end of each section, you will have the opportunity to go back and review that section, and then complete the questions until answered correctly. Once you have completed all 10 sections there is a final assessment. Once finished you will be issued your training certificate.
