~ You must have a Conservation ID number to take this class. One can be obtained FREE of charge and a link to the webform is automatically emailed to you upon registering. Please look at your registration receipt.
~ Students will receive a link to the online course via email at least 2 hours before class time (usually its sent out the night before class and then again a few hours before class) and must have access to a computer with a working camera for the entire course time.
~ Testing can be accomplished on any smart device (phone, tablet or computer) but the course should be taken on a computer as mentioned above.
~ Test will be taken by all students at the same time, so although students can share a computer while taking the course for the purpose of the instructor seeing all students within the group on your camera, each student must take the test on a different device at the same time while on camera (supervised).
~ A link to take the exam will be given at the end of the course curriculum. If the test-takers are using a device other than the one used for the course, you will need to be able to share the link given with the students in group (via email, text, etc).
~ Students will have 60 minutes to complete the exam. It takes most students 20 minutes to complete the exam so don’t panic, you have ample time to complete it.
