Some states require a minimum amount of "seat time" in order to successfully complete CE courses. "Seat time" is the amount of time spent reading through course materials and answering any exam questions. For these states, a timer is displayed on every page in the course materials showing how much time has been spent in the course as well as the minimum amount of time required before the final exam can be submitted.
Courses are all based on a 50-minute hour. For example, a 3-hour course will have a seat time requirement of 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The number of final exam attempts allowed varies by state (some are unlimited). If the exam is not passed within the allowed number of attempts, you will be re-enrolled in that course at no charge. If you are re-enrolled in a course, you will be starting back at the the beginning of that individual course and will need to work through the course material again. Check the details for your state on our CE Requirements page.
Check Understanding and Review questions can be attempted as many times as needed with no penalties.
Completion Certificates are provided immediately after passing the final exam for your course. Certificates can be accessed from the My Account page at any time after being awarded.
