What do I receive when I register for a home study course? What is the difference between "Complete Course with Text" and "Registration and Exam Only"?

All courses are available with complete course materials including text, answer sheet, and test questions to document your participation. To accommodate professionals who have access to the required text or who prefer to purchase it (new or used) independently of CM Home Study, courses are offered at a reduced fee for registration and exam only, no text provided. Registration and exam only prices do include any applicable supplemental reading material. Be sure you obtain the correct edition of the text. Courses are presented in an open-book format, based on the required reading materials for the course. Text materials are needed to answer the test questions.

How do I receive continuing education credit?

After you return the answer sheet with 75% or higher correct answers, a certificate verifying your completion will be sent to you for your submission to your certifying or licensing organization. Certificates verifying completion are subject to any changes by the professional certification organization granting continuing education approval. Evaluate the number of course hours applicable for your own individual license. The number of hours may be greater than the number you may be able to apply to your situation.

Can I cancel my registration and get a refund?

To cancel your registration and request a refund, return all course materials, in good condition, to CM Home Study within 10 days of receipt and prior to October 10, 2018, and a refund will be issued within 10 business days of CM's receipt of materials.

If I have a disability and need accommodation, can I still register for home study courses?

Contact CM Home Study if special accommodations are required to participate in these home study courses.

What certifying or licensing organizations approve your courses?

Not all courses have the same approvals. Visit our Course Description section and Approvals section for details.

Why is there a difference in the amount of continuing education credits?

Continuing education credit is determined by several variables such as the length and complexity of reading materials, the number of test questions, and the requirements of certifying/licensing organizations.

How many test questions are there?

The number of test questions vary from 35 to 155, depending on the course.
