Three modules with a certificate of completion

Our training features three modules. It may take you up to two hours to complete the training. The three modules should be completed in order, but not necessarily in one sitting. You may pause the training at any time. If you exit the training completely, your progress will be saved and you can return to where you left off the next time you log in. A certificate of completion is available for people who complete all three modules in order. Two continuing education hours (CEHs) are earned for completion of this course.
