Choose a certification option below:

  • Course: An instructor teaches a course that includes an open-book test. 
  • Course - Separate Exam: If the date-town in the list below states "course" "separate exam", this means that we are offering two options on that date:  1) a full day course that includes the test, or 2) a test only writing time, no instruction.  When registering, please indicate your choice.  
  • Refresh and Write: Refresh & Write courses are half a day where you study on your own and come prepared for a short review before writing the test.  Everyone is welcome, even a person certifying for the first time. 
  • Online: A course offered through website access with a login and password. Please see our demonstration video of the online course.
