General Information and Instructions for Online CE Courses

General Information – Overview

  • Basically 1 CE equals 1 hour of study. Generally each one (1) CE credit corresponds to one (1) hour of reading, watching or listening to course materials. If you read faster or if you are familiar with the material, you can finish the course faster.
  • Course format may include  Articles,  Audios, and/or Videos. Course format is marked clearly on the course pages. Transcripts are included for audios and videos. View all courses sorted by the type of course materials.
  • You can complete courses in one or more sittings over three years. Since courses require updating, the course/s you purchase will expire after three years.
  • You can read, watch or listen to the course material online, download and/or print it.
  • You can take the posttest as many times as you need to pass.
  • You will get your test results and a printable certificate instantaneously online.
  • The day you submit the evaluation (after you pass the posttest) is your course completion date. IMPORTANT NOTE: All times/dates are Eastern Standard Time.
  • It is the policy of Zur Institute to make every reasonable effort to provide qualified students with disabilities with the opportunity to take full advantage of its programs. To that end, all courses with audio and video have transcripts. Also, in addition to all webpages and course material, all posttests and evaluations are accessible by the visually-impaired.
