The self-paced curriculum covers the 16 content areas from Essentials in seven modules plus interactive, computer-based testing components. The program allows the user to study at their own pace, focusing on areas needing improvement and recording learning gains as progress is made. A certificate of completion is awarded once the course is completed with at least a 70 percent pass rate.
