Orientation information, including travel information, is provided to those who complete the first payment for the program.
Community volunteering is one way to begin. Many people begin by volunteering in a Planned Parenthood clinic, or a clinic providing free medical care, or as an assistant in a nursing home, or an HIV/AIDS wellness program. All of these would give you great training in being with people and talking and listening to people.
Upon admission to the program, you will receive instructions about submitting payments for the program. Payment is accepted by check or credit card.
In order for participants to complete (e.g., "pass") the certificate program, they must complete all listed requirements, which includes receiving a passing score on quizzes/post-tests and completing evaluations. The quizzes/post-tests include a few multiple-choice and true-false questions that cover the course content. The certificate itself is not graded: participants either complete or do not complete.
Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Most applications are reviewed within one month of submission. Once your application has been reviewed, you will be notified by email about your admission status. Please note: Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
Please refer to the instructions you were provided in the orientation email., which include contact information for troubleshooting.
A link to your certificate can be found in two ways:
1. At the end of the evaluation, a link to your certificate is provided.
2. Once you have fully completed the evaluation, an email will be sent to you with a link to your certificate.
If you are still having problems viewing your certificate, please contact email@example.com.
You do not need a high-end webcam in order to participate--there are decent webcams for as low as $20.00. You can plug in most webcams using an USB port and downloading the software for that particular webcam.
You might also want to consider getting a headset with a microphone, which can help minimize background sounds and improve the quality of your learning experience. Headsets are not required but many participants find them helpful.
