This program is made up of videos, tutorials, assigned readings, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes and a final exam. This course is asynchronous, which means that it can be viewed at the participant’s own pace and you can log in and out of the program as much as you want. However, you must complete this course within 30 days. Once you complete the course you will have 7 days from that date to print off your certificate. After 7 days your access to the training program will expire.

You will also be required to review all of the material for the PetCPR+ Certification course that you will be teaching in great detail including all lesson plans, the E-Book reference guide, and the class PowerPoint. Every item in this program is vitally important for you to review and will be covered within all of the assessments. The cumulative final exam will be taken at the end of the course and covers all material presented within the training program. Participants must pass each quiz with a 100% and the final exam with a 100% in order to successfully pass the program and receive their certification as an instructor.

There are 5 attempts allowed for each quiz and for the final. Anyone who does not pass the course will be removed from the program and may reapply to our instructors program after 90 days. We do not guarantee re-enrollment. Modules must be completed in order, therefore you will not be able to access a module until you successfully complete the previous module. You must also pass all modules before you will be given access to the final exam.

Any participant that needs an extension to complete this orientation must email the instructor training manager prior to the end date of this orientation program and request an extension. Extensions are not guaranteed and are only awarded in situations of extenuating circumstances.
