Your Course Testing Procedures
STEP 1: Your course outline

STEP 2: Your minimum study time before taking exams

On enrollment, your course reading materials are immediately available online. You have a minimum 1 week study time following your course enrollment date before you may complete the course, unless you are on the 45-hour login timer. You may test on no more than 15 credit hours of continuing education during a 24-hour period.

STEP 3: Take the quizzes

To be eligible to take your first exam you first complete your quizzes, as mandated.
You may begin taking quizzes online immediately after enrollment. Quizzes are not timed, have no minimum passing score and you have unlimited quiz attempts. You take the quizzes online. You receive immediate feedback on your quiz performance and answers as you complete each quiz.

STEP 4: Take the final exams

You need a score of 70% on all exams to receive 45 hours of continuing education credit for renewal of your license. The exam(s) for each section becomes available online on expiration of the minimum study time and your completion of the section's quizzes.

You can test on only one section during any 24-hour period.

The maximum time allowed per exam is equal to 1 minute per question. Exams are multiple choice and open book. Exams are graded instantly upon completion online.

When you fail any exam a backup exam is immediately available online. If you also fail the backup exam, the section automatically resets requiring you to repeat the study and exam process. For Sections 1, 2 and 3 resets, you retake the quizzes and wait the minimum study time before receiving 2 more attempts to pass the section exam.

Minimum study times for reset sections vary;

  • three days when you fail Section 1 or 2 exams;
  • five days when you fail both sections 1 and 2 exams; and
  • for Section 3, you wait 3 hours per failed exam.

You incur no charge for retakes on resets during your 1-year enrollment.

NOTICE: Students enrolled in 45 hour CE packages other than #203 and 702, have their scores for exams on Sections 1 and 2 averaged. When your averaged score is less than 70%, both Sections 1 and 2 reset.
