Frequently asked questions

Here are some common questions about the course.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our support team.
How will I access my course materials?

After you purchase and enroll into a course, you'll be given access to your own student dashboard. There you'll find all the courses you're enrolled in. You'll also be able to manage your user profile,  view/download certificates, view order histories, and monitor course completion progress.

How is the course material presented?

Our courses follow a microlearning approach, breaking down each lesson into two parts:

  1. A concise on-screen video presentation.
  2. A brief quiz that covers the specific topics discussed in the previous video.
Why do you take the microlearning approach?

We intentionally structure our courses this way because we've found that presenting information in short, focused bursts significantly enhances retention rates and improves understanding.

How long are the video lessons?

On average, our video lessons are about 5 minutes long. Some of our more complex topics may reach up to 15 minutes long, while others can be as short as 1 minute long.

What happens after a video lesson?

Upon completing each video lesson, you'll have the option to rewatch it as many times as you wish or proceed to the quiz. You'll also have the ability to come back to watch or reference the video lesson as needed between quiz attempts.

What can I expect from the quizzes?

After each lesson, you'll be prompted to take a brief quiz comprising of about 5 questions, depending on how long the video was. These quizzes are not timed, and you'll have multiple attempts to achieve a passing grade.

How do I progress to the next lesson?

To advance, you need to earn a passing grade of 80% on the quiz. You can rewatch the video lesson between quiz attempts if needed.

How do I access my certificate of completion at the end of the course?

There are 3 ways you can download your certificates. The method we recommend is to:

  1. Login to your dashboard, and click your name in the top right corner.
  2. Then click "My Account".
  3. Navigate to the Certificates tab, then click "View" next to the certificate you want to view.
  4. Then click "Download PDF". If it asks you to allow downloads, click "Allow".

We like to suggest this method because it makes viewing and downloading multiple certificates at once quick and easy. If you run into any trouble, contact us, and we'll help you out.
