WRITTEN TEST INFORMATION– The written test will come from the student manual. Students attending this class must download the student manual prior to the class. Download the student manual here –Student Manual Link

There is no allowance for later make-up performance testing, or qualifications. If a student fails any portion of the performance or qualification testing- they fail the course. There will be no make-up written testing exams either. Failure to pass the written exam results in a failure of this course.

For test-in failures only you will need to work with PPD to get any course refunds or credits, however, you may still be billed for the entirety of the first day of classes.

For any other failure resulting in dismissal the full tuition cost will remain due; no refund or tuition rebate will be available.
