Two Ways to Study Coursework?

You have two ways to complete the coursework. You can just view the specific modules that you find interesting. Or, you can complete the entire certification process to Get Star Certified. Learn the difference here.

1. - Self-Directed: Just Compete the Coursework

The first option allows you to select whatever courses you want to explore.  You have access to  each course available to you when you enrolled in Star Training.   But, you can jump from course to course and view the lessons you are interested in.  This is YOUR course and can take the quizzes … or not. Your choice.

You still must complete the lessons in order, but, once completed you can move throuh the lessons and courses how you prefer.  

2. - Get Star Certified

The second option allows you to Get Star Certified.  The only difference is you complete all the courses and take all the quizzes You don’t have to take the COURSES in order, however, some material is based on previous material. As always, you still must complete the LESSONS in order,

So basically – take the short quizzes and Get Star Certified.  Or, if you are short on time – just watch the coursework you want to watch! Your choice.
