Since they are segmented in sets of five you will have plenty of time to review and edit your answers. After an hour, the test will automatically end.
  • You will get results immediately after the completion of the test. If you didn’t pass, you will receive a notification of a “refer,” and you will have to retake a module assessment. You can complete these modules at your own pace, as there is no deadline to complete the course.
  • When you finalize modules, you can take the final written assignments that test your knowledge and understanding of the modules.
