The student is required to follow all modules and units in sequence. Once a unit or module is completed, he/she will have to mark it as completed. At any time, the student will be able to see his/her progress in the course in a progress bar.
After completion of 12 modules, the student is required to take a Participant’s Manual Practice Test. Then, in order to prepare for license exam, the student is strongly recommended to complete the additional Practice and Mock Tests.
