Registration, Payment, and Course FAQ's
Does taking your course fulfill the New York State requirements?
Yes. We are an approved provider authorized by the New York State Department of Education. If you are required
to take either the School Violence Prevention and Intervention Workshop or the Identification and Reporting
of Child Abuse and Neglect Workshop, our course meets the requirement.
What is the timer at the top of the each page for?
There is a timer that records time spent per chapter and a second timer that records total time for the course.
The State of New York requires that you must spend at least two hours on the course. In addition, each chapter
has a minimum time requirement.
Do I have to complete the course in one session or within a certain period of time?
No. Log on and off as many times as you wish. The timer feature keeps track of both total time and time spent
on each chapter regardless of how many times you log off and log back in. You may take as long as you wish to
complete the course.
What is the official certificate and what do I do with it?
Once you complete the course, you may print your own certificate or request that it be mailed to you if you
do not have a printer. Fill in the rest of your personal information, including your SSN and date of birth,
and sign and date the certificate. You must mail the top "official" document to the state along with or following
your license/certification application. The bottom (yellow) document is the "customer copy" and you must keep that.
If an employer requests a copy, make a photocopy of your copy for them. Only the State of New York requires an
original copy. Please keep your copy in a safe place.
Is there an exam for completion of the course?
Yes. It is a multiple-choice test that is not graded. Although there is no passing grade, please note that all questions must be answered.
When do I receive my certificate?
Once you complete the course, if you choose to not print your own certificate, your certificate will be mailed
and you will receive it in 7 to 10 business days. The actual delivery time is dependent on your location and
the postal service. If there is any problem with your address, we will contact you by phone to resolve it.
What do I do with my certificate?
Complete instructions are enclosed with the certificate. You must write your social security number and date
of birth on your certificate BEFORE mailing a copy to the State of New York.
Do I have to send anything back to you?
No. Do not send anything back to us. You only need to send the certificate to the state.
I have lost my certificate. What can I do?
Log back into the course and either print another certificate or request a mailed certificate.
