How do I get started?
Signup and Registration
Register for a member account by clicking the Sign Up button on the top right hand side of the page. This will take you to the account creation page. Once you have completed all fields, click on the green Create My Account button at the bottom of the page. If all of the information you've entered is correct, you will then be taken to a page that will prompt you to verify your email. The last step is to check your email and click on the confirmation link.
Note: If click Create Account and you see the message: "The password you entered appears in a list of known compromised credentials, aka hacking list. Please use a different password." The password you've entered is on a list of easily cracked or commonly used passwords. Adding some special characters, numbers or an additional word will correct this.
Once you have filled in all of the required account information, click on the green Create My Account button at the bottom of the page. If your email address is valid, and your passwords match, you will then be taken to a page that will prompt you to verify your email. The last step is to check your email and click on the confirmation link.
Find and Enroll in Courses
After your account is created, click Licenses then Your Licenses/Certifications at the top of your screen, then click Add License/Certification and enter your license information.
