How do I finish the course?
To finish the course, you must be in the instructional lessons (the ones called Hour 1, Hour 2, etc) for at least 50 minutes each.  You must then complete the course test and click on the course completion certificate (this is very important!!).  Once your certificate is generated, save it to your computer or print it out for your records.  The certificate means that you have successfully passed the course and we must have that certificate generated in order to report you to DPOR.  After that, your work is done!  We report to DPOR every Monday morning as well as the first day of every month, but you can contact us to request that we report more frequently.  Also, you should be able to use that course completion certificate to prove to DPOR that your training requirement has been satisfied.
