4 Steps for Online Training

1. Get an Email Address for Each Examinee.

Each online exam taker must have a unique email address at time of registration.  If you need to register individuals who do not have email addresses, create free Gmail accounts for them, and use those new email addresses for registration.

2. Register and Pay for your Online Training. 

Click this link for the online training home page.  Then select the correct exam to begin the registration process.  Registration fees may be paid by credit card or by check.  Payment must be received in order to proceed with the online training and exam.

3. Access to the Moodle Course and Exam.

The training materials and exams are hosted on an educational web portal called Moodle.  The registration payment automatically creates a Moodle user account for the examinee.  When payment is received, the examinee will be sent an email confirmation from Moodle Administrator or LearnTech with a username and password along with a link to the university’s Moodle web service.

4. Watch the Videos and Take the Exam.

After logging into Moodle, you can download materials and watch the videos as needed.  Then take your exam whenever ready.

NOTE:  Certifications are updated and wallet cards mailed monthly.

NOTE:  Before attempting to take an online examination, the individual must have a personal working email account and be comfortable using computers for online activities. The process outlined below is not terribly difficult, but is complex enough that anyone who is uneasy using computers or the internet should probably not attempt this exam; or at the very least have someone more experienced walk them through the registration process.
