During course enrollment, students create a personal registration profile by entering personal information on a secure page so that the provider may process certification. The required information is sensitive in nature and may include SSN, driver’s license number, address, and form of payment. During registration, the system also prompts the user for additional personal validation information used during the course: "What are the last four digits of your SSN?" / "How many doors does your vehicle have?" / "How did you renew your driver’s license last?" / etc. Randomly, the user is prompted with a personal validation question at several points during the course; these questions are based on the answers provided by the student during registration. Additionally, the questions are timed and must be answered correctly in order for the trainee to proceed with the course. If the question supplied is incorrect, the course is temporarily suspended and the trainee is prompted to call the provider to explain why they failed validation. Their information is verified by a trainer who can then remotely unlock the course to allow the student to proceed with the coursework. If this personal information is not verified, the provider will suspend the student from any further access, refund any tuition payments collected and take the appropriate administrative enforcement actions. This validation sequence is enforced randomly on multiple occasions upon entering, taking and exiting the course.Testing Requirements: At the end of each lesson there will be a short quiz of 10 multiple choice questions. You must pass this quiz with a 70% or better in order to move forward with the course. The quiz will be automatically graded as you complete it. Failure to pass the quiz with 70% will result in repeating the lesson.For the final exam, the student will have 20 minutes (1 minute for each multiple choice question) to complete the twenty (20) multiple choice, closed-book final and will need to score 70% or better in order to pass.
