Enrollment Help

Course enrollment

Account setup and course enrollment requires the following 3 steps:

  1. Create a New Profile Account: New participants must create an online account with our site. Creating a new account includes setting up a secure username and password, providing contact information, agreeing to site and admission requirement terms and policy.

    Once an online account is created participants use their username and password to login and complete steps 1 and 2 below.


  2. Verify Admission Requirements: Part of the Admission requirement includes verifying participants have the proper credentials to take the courses. The "Verify Credentials" link is where participants add and upload their credentials for verification.
