We offer two levels of certification for each course.

All students who complete our training receive a Certificate of Completion.

Those who wish to achieve formal qualifications and opt to write the online exams can earn their Certificate of Mastery.

Certificates of Completion

Our first level of certification verifies that students completed our classes.

Classroom completion is verified through attendance records, while online completion is verified through content completion logs.

When our records show someone participated but we cannot verify course completion, we issue a Certificate of Participation. These do not include the hours of instruction as this cannot be verified.

Students who complete our training can earn the following Certificates of Completion or Participation:
