  2. Click “Lesson 1” to review it.
  3. “Quiz 1” will become available after you complete the entire module for Lesson 1, which means you must navigate all the way through the very last slide.

  6. Please note the following:
    • The course is designed so students must complete Lesson 1 before you can attempt Quiz 1, which means students must navigate all the way through the very last slide. Then students may attempt Quiz 1. Lesson 2 will become available after students pass Quiz 1 with a grade of 70% or higher, and they may attempt Quiz 1 as many times as they need to. The same pattern applies throughout the rest of the lessons and quizzes. Participants will get an e-mail with a PDF of their certificate after they successfully complete all five lessons five quizzes.
    • Lesson 5 and Quiz 5 are in development and will be ready for review soon.
    • We need your help in writing questions for Quizzes 1-4. Ideally, we would like to have a question bank of > 20 questions for each quiz. This way, we can make each quiz pulls 5-10 randomly selected questions for each quiz.
