Self-paced courses allow you to work through course materials on your schedule. Materials may be accessed online, in print, or both.
For many of our self-paced courses, you will be assigned a technical advisor. Technical advisors are individuals with extensive knowledge of codes and the safety codes system. Advisors are available to answer questions, provide clarification and support, and help you prepare to take your exam.
Students have the option to take a challenge exam if they believe they have sufficient knowledge to pass the course without completing course activities. Contact us for more information.
