A typical course runs over a six-week period.  You will begin receiving emailed lessons on the start date of the class for which you've signed-up.  You can expect to receive two lessons per week on Wednesday and Friday.  You can read each lesson at your leisure, and complete each assignment when it is convenient for you. That's the beauty of taking an online course - they're designed to fit your schedule - not your instructor's.

Our self-paced courses allow you to take courses whenever your schedule permits.  You can take classes whenever you log on to your computer, at home, at work, or on the road.  However, all course material must be completed within a six-month period.  Approximately one week after the college receives your payment the instructor will send you a unique URL to access the course material.  The instructor is always available by email to answer any questions you might have.  You will receive a certificate from college within 2-4 weeks upon completion of the course.
