First you will download a copy of the provided eBook.  Read this at your pace and convenience.  Most of the video courses were recorded with the assumption that the book has been read.  Once you have completed the book, mark as complete in the progress box (located to the right of the eBook). Then begin watching or listening to the sessions.  Each session is approximately twenty minutes long.  After you complete each session, check the progress box and the next session will open for you.  Once you’ve completed the eBook and the teaching sessions the test will become available to you.  You get two opportunities to improve your grade if you are not satisfied with the first score.
