How does this work?

Students will receive all printed materials to read on their own. They will need to complete all unit tests and vulnerability assessments as assigned in the course reading.


How do I get my contact hours? As soon as payment is received and unit tests and vulnerability assessments are graded with a 70% or more, we will submit a roster report.


Any questions, please email or call the office.
