    You create your username during the signup process. Your email address is only used for communication purposes.

    I need the login information for my employee.

    Keeping student/client account information safe is our top priority and therefore there are safety measures we take before your information is released over the phone. When someone calls requesting account information, they must have the students name, email address, and the phone number or physical address to verify account.

    I purchased the course, and my card was declined, yet it shows that a transaction was made on my bank statement.

    Sometimes declined purchase attempts may show as a pending transaction on your credit card statement awaiting approval. As the purchase attempts have already been declined, they will not receive an approval and your bank will release the funds back to you in a couple of days. If you require the funds sooner, you will need to contact your bank and request they release the funds back to you.

    I was kicked out of the course and now its asking me to repurchase.

    There are a few reasons why you could have been kicked out of the course.

    Failing a PVQ:
    Per State requirement a student can only fail due to personal verification questions (PVQ's) a maximum of 3 times within each module. You failed due to either incorrectly answering or not submitting your answer within the 60 seconds allowed 3 times.

    Failing the knowledge check:
    Due to State regulations a student can only fail the knowledge checks a maximum of 3 times per module. You will have to repurchase the course in order to continue.

    Failing the exam:
    Per state requirement a student can fail the final exam a maximum of 2 times. Since this was your second time you failed you will have to purchase the course again in order to continue.

    Its asking me to provide answers to personal verification questions.

    Some States require Personal verification questions. Personal verification questions (PVQ's) are a state requirement and are used to verify your identity throughout the exam. Once you enter the answer you will need to click on the blue add question button. Once all questions have been selected, the exam will begin.

    Misspelled name on certificate.

    As a safety measure to prevent fraud once the certificate gets issued, the student no longer has the ability to change the name on the certificate. If there is a mistake on the name on your certificate you will need to submit a support ticket with your request along with an explanation. If your request is approved, our support staff will notify you via support ticket. Once the name has been updated your previous certificate will be voided and you will be required to print the new certificate as the State Regulatory Authority will be notified of the voided certificate. 

    When will I receive my refund?

    If you already made contact with one of our support staff and they issued you a refund, you will receive your refund in approximately 4-5 business days.
