Protecting your order information is a priority for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the Site address will change from "http" to "https." Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through a secure connection.

While there are a number of quizzes contained in the course, we do not grade these
quizzes in the sense that it will prevent you from moving forward through the course.
However, we do record the quiz results so we know how you are progressing and learning
the material presented in the course. The quiz results will be shown to you after
you have taken each quiz so you will know how you are doing. The main purpose of
these quizzes is to help you, the learner, feel comfortable that you are understanding
the information being presented.
There will also be an end of course exam,
and your responses will be recorded and summarized for you. Again, the exam is not
graded. The purpose of the exam is to help you, the learner, feel comfortable that you
are understanding the material. If you do not answer a certain number of questions
correctly on this final exam, you may be required to retake the final exam until
you have answered the required number of questions correctly. If you are having
trouble and are being asked to retake the final exam more than twice, please contact
