If your recently completed section is not marked green, try refreshing the page.
  • The course is in six parts: a welcome and five sections. You will be tested at the end of each section. If you fail a test, you will be linked back to the beginning of that section so that you can review the materials again. You will then be given another test. This test will not be identical to the one you failed.
