FAQ about the (9) self-paced online classes

  • What is the Participants Manual used for? The manual is the course material that you need to read prior to taking online classes. It will help reinforce your understanding and answer most questions that may arise.

  • What if I have still have questions while taking this training? Bring your questions to the instructor-led checkpoints to discuss any questions you have. 

  • What happens if I have to pause partway through one of the (9) online classes?  You can take part of a course and resume later where you stopped, no problem. The application keeps track of where you are and which units you have completed.

  • I would like to review one of the classes but I already completed it.  Can I go back?  Yes, you can re-take any units you have already completed if you wish.

  • Life got busy and I wasn’t able to complete the (9) online classes before Skills day.  What are my options?  You must complete all 9 units before you attend the Skills day.  If things don’t work out the way you had planned and there are unfinished online classes the morning of Skills day, do not show up at the Skills day site.  Instead, contact and we will help figure out what your options are.  If you really want this training, we will absolutely assist you in finding a way to make it happen, even if it means saving you a spot in the next Academy.
