Once you have passed the Module Tests with at least 70%, you will be invited to take the Final Exam. It is a Closed Book Exam, and it must be taken in one sitting with 40 minutes to complete. 

Please do not start the exam unless you are confident that you have 40 minutes of uninterrupted Internet connection available to complete the exam. Remember that the final exam cannot be put on hold. It must be completed in one sitting.

From the moment you click to begin the exam, you will have to answer approximately 45 multiple choice questions, which cover all phases of your curriculum. Some questions may appear to have more than one right answer, but there is only one correct answer per question. 

If required, you can mark a question to review it later and move on to the next question. As you progress with the exam, the on-screen menu will show you the total amount of questions, how many have been answered, how many are unanswered, or have been marked for review.

Once complete your results will be immediately available to you on screen. 

The current minimum pass required is 70%. If successful, you will receive your document of completion within three weeks.
