Will your online courses work on my phone, tablet, or other device? Yes. Since technology continues its rapid pace forward, it is impossible for us to provide a current and complete list of all devices on which our courses will work. We invite you to take our free sample course so that you can personally test if the online content and streaming video work on your device.

Are your online courses downloadable to my computer?
You must be logged in on our website to view at least some of the course materials. Many of our courses do have downloadable files.

Can I print the online test to work on it at my convenience?
Yes. We provide a study guide with this course that has the test questions and answer choices. You can print it off and work on it as you study. When you are ready to take the test, you will log into the system and supply your answers to the test questions.

What happens if I fail the test?
Do I have to pay again? No. If you happen to fail our test, you can continue to retest until you do pass at no additional charge.

Do you report our course completions to the NCBTMB, ABMP, AMTA, or any other agencies? None of these agencies have a method for us to report to them on your behalf. They prefer that you provide the evidence of CEs that their renewal process details.
