Completing an online class is easy, even if your computer skills are not well developed. Instructions are clear.

Classes consist of slides that you may click through at your own pace. There are audio clips, some video instructions, activities like matching, drop and drag, pictures, visuals and case studies. Some classes have pop-up quizzes that are not scored. Some, depending upon the requirements of the agency that governs the industry, have final exams of multiple- choice questions. The classes are easy to take and move quickly, depending upon how fast the Learner wants to proceed.

Some industries require their licensees to maintain a fifty-minute hour of seat time and those slides are timed to assure that the requirement is met.

Yes, if the phone is in the landscape position but this is not the ideal way to enjoy or maximize what you learn from the class. A larger screen works very well and is much better to use. Also, some regulatory agencies prohibit taking continuing education classes on cell phones.

Yes. Here’s how:

  1. Click on “My Account” on top of Education Pathways home page.

  2. Enter the user name and password that you chose when you purchased your first class. Hit “enter” on your keyboard.

  3. Click on “View Course” for the class you would like to complete.

Yes, participants typically have access to course materials, presentations, and resources for twelve months after purchasing the course. This allows for review and reference, ensuring continued learning and application of knowledge.

Education Pathways has a 100% money-back guarantee. Should a learner request a refund before the successful completion of a class not reported as completed, the refund will be processed immediately.
