Thank you for your interest in the Pre-Certification Training Program! You have two options available:
The self-paced online version of the program is now available! Did we mention it's FREE? You will need a good internet connection to access the course. The 11 modules must be completed in order, but once you have completed them, you can go back and review any section. We estimate it will take about 16 hours to complete the program, but again - YOU CHOOSE when, and it does not have to be completed all at once. The benefit of online learning is that it fits with your schedule!
