How much does this program cost?
BHMT will pay for the 1-year online subscription cost and the CE registration cost.
Is there a cap on training?
No. A registered participant has unlimited access to the English Skills Series anytime. Each program includes 40 hrs. of content, so you are able to complete the modules at your own pace.
This is a “self-paced” program. What does that mean?
There is flexibility throughout the English Skills Series for self-pacing between learning modules and quizzes so you can learn the material at your own speed. Once you register, the material is accessible 24 hours per day, anywhere there is Internet access.
What technical support services are available and how do I use them?
For program details or any student registration problems, please contact David Hans.
