    I intend to sign up for this. One question: is it on line?

      Hi Patricia,

      Thanks for your interest! This is indeed an online course. It is entirely self paced as all of our online classes are.

    I have taken your CEAS course and use those tools regularly. I am thinking of the AOEAS course, but it says there is a 60 day time-frame to complete the course. I will be out of the country until the end of June and cannot complete the course in 60 days from my registration. If I were to start the course in July, do I have 60 days after starting the course to complete it? thank you. Martin

      Hi Martin,

      The course will default to 60 days from the date of registration. However, we are always understanding of special circumstances and would definitely be able to extend your access to the course to make sure you have enough time to complete it.
