General Licensing Course Information

Students are not required to have any formal educational background, but the course follows a challenging curriculum to prepare licensees for their professional responsibilities, and requires good reading comprehension and basic math skills. As such, a high school diploma or equivalent is strongly recommended. There is a minimum age requirement of 18.

The final exam is a comprehensive test covering all prescribed subject areas and all sessions. It constitutes 100% of the student’s final grade. Students must pass with a score of 75% or higher. Instructors will provide a comprehensive review, including a review sheet, prior to the final exam.

A student who receives between 65% and 74% are eligible to retake the final exam within 30 days of the course ending date.

Students must attend 80% of all scheduled classroom hours. Those who do not satisfy attendance requirements will not be eligible to take the course’s final exam.

Instructors will take attendance for every course session. Instructors are responsible for monitoring attendance, including late arrivals and early departures. All hours missed are counted toward the total absences allowed.

If a student wishes to withdraw prior to class starting, they may transfer to another class or receive a full refund.
