This online course consists of nine learning modules. Prior to accessing the course, the participants are provided with a study guide in an effort to enhance the retention of important course information. After modules have been completed, the participant will receive a comprehensive final exam. All examinations must be passed with a minimum score of 70%. Participants have three attempts to pass each module exam and one attempt to pass the final examination.
