Course Time Limits

The course must successfully be completed within one (1) year of purchase by the student. Successful completion includes receiving a passing grade on the final exam. (See following "Exams" section for details.)

You will receive credit toward your license renewal for the licensing cycle in which you successfully complete the final exam.


Students must complete the instructional module or modules and receive a passing grade of 70% or higher on a final examination.

If the student fails initially to achieve a passing score on a final examination, the student shall successfully pass the examination within one (1) calendar month from the time the first final exam was taken to use the course for continuing education credit. (For example: if you first take the final exam on July 15 and do not receive a passing grade, you have until August 15 to retake and pass the exam.)
