PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
~ You must have a Conservation ID number to take this class. One can be obtained FREE of charge and a link to the webform is automatically emailed to you upon registering. Please look at your registration receipt.
~ Students will receive a link to the online course via email at least 2 hours before class time (usually its sent out the night before class and then again a few hours before class) and must have access to a computer with a working camera for the entire course time.
~ Testing can be accomplished on any smart device (phone, tablet or computer) but the course should be taken on a computer as mentioned above.
~ Test will be taken by all students at the same time, so although students can share a computer while taking the course for the purpose of the instructor seeing all students within the group on your camera, each student must take the test on a different device at the same time while on camera (supervised).
~ A link to take the exam will be given at the end of the course curriculum. If the test-takers are using a device other than the one used for the course, you will need to be able to share the link given with the students in group (via email, text, etc).
~ Students will have 60 minutes to complete the exam. It takes most students 20 minutes to complete the exam so don’t panic, you have ample time to complete it.

Spectacular class that was easy to comprehend and digest.
Very great course. Quick and simplified everything. Would highly recommend.
Convenient and Worth It!
Yes, the class was long, but the instructor was not monotone and kept it fun. Plenty of breaks offered throughout. Highly recommend!
Thoughtful and Patient
Loved the pace and tone of the course! Instructor was knowledgeable and made the course entertaining. Was not dry like I was expecting. Ample breaks were provided, and I did not have to miss out on anything by taking bathroom breaks during class. Highly recommend!
