Frequently Asked Questions about the virtual class:

Question: Can I take the class on my smartphone or tablet?

Answer: A desktop or laptop computer is strongly recommended. You may have difficulty reading he information in the presentation on a smaller screen. The battery may not last the entire length of the class. Some older devices may not be supported. Computers with internet access are often available for use at public libraries. You may use your employer's computer or borrow a computer from a friend or family member, but you must use your own email address for the class. If you will be using a tablet, make sure the battery is fully charged before class, and connect the charger during breaks. If you have no other option than to use a smartphone, you must speak with the Instructor before beginning the class. If you complete the class on a smartphone without permission from the Instructor and do not pass the final exam, you will not receive a permit. You will be required pay the class fee and complete the entire class again using a computer, then pass the exam, in order to receive a permit.

Question: What if I don't have a printer to print the Key Information and unit quizzes?

Answer: The Key Information must be on paper prior to beginning the class presentation, with no exceptions. If you do not have a printer yourself, your employer or a friend or family member may be able to print the information for you. You can also go to a business such as Staples, Fed Ex, The UPS Store or a public library to have the information printed for a small charge. You can also copy the Key Information by hand onto blank paper, which usually takes 30-40 minutes. It is strongly recommended that the unit quizzes be printed, so that you will have the questions and your written answers together on the same page for review before taking the final exam. If you are not able to print the quizzes, you may write the answers on blank paper to submit to the Instructor after each unit. We can also send the printed Key Information and quizzes by regular mail for a fee of $10.00, which will require that you wait to begin the class until you have received the printed information.

Question: How do I ask questions during class?

Answer: All communication with the Instructor will be by telephone, text or email. The answers to almost all questions that arise are included in the presentation, so make sure to give the presentation your full attention. When a question comes to mind, you can make a written note for yourself so you can ask after the video, if the answer does not come up later in the presentation. After each unit, you may submit questions about information presented in that unit. The Instructor will answer the question or provide clarification as soon as possible. Questions about informaiton presented in a later unit will not be addressed until that unit is completed, which will most likely contain the answer.

Question: How long does the class take?

Answer: Viewing the class presentation, answering and submitting the review quizzes and speaking with the Instructor for final review can be completed in 5 hours or less. The final exam will be provided after the final review, and takes an average of 20-30 minutes. Prior to beginning the presentation, you must complete all pre-class requirements. The class presentation is a series of three videos, based on many years of live in-person classes. In fact, much of the class video was recorded during live classes. You must view the entire presentation, from beginning to end, in the order it is presented. You must complete and submit the review quizzes according to instructions. It is recommended to complete the entire class in one day, with only short breaks between units. Longer breaks or interruptions will rusult in the class taking longer. You may not skip any part of the video presentation, but you can rewind and rewatch any part as needed. If necessary, you can complete the presentation over two or three days, but this is not recommended. Each individual unit, including the review quiz, should be completed on one day. If you must complete the class over more than one day, stop between units and plan to spend additional time before the final exam to review information from earlier units thoroughly. Please notify the Instructor if you are stopping for the day at any point for any reason.

Question: What if I don't pass the exam?

Answer: The entire class is designed to help you learn the information that you need to do your job correctly, and to pass the exam so you can be issued a server permit. If you follow instructions, give your full attention during the presentation and complete the review quizzes according to instructions, you will very likely pass the final exam easily. If you do not pass the exam the first time, you will have one opportunity to review the class information with the Instructor, and then retake the exam. At this time, there is no charge to retake the exam. If you are not able to retake or pass the exam on the same day, you will need to register and pay for another class.

Question: What if I want to take the class late at night or on the weekend? Is the class really available anytime?

Answer: You can complete the class at anytime that is convenient for you, as long as all pre-class requirements are met and you follow all instructions carefully. If you are working on the class during off hours, such as early or late in the day, overnight, or on the weekend, responses from the Instructor may be delayed. The Instructor will usually be available during most daytime and evening hours on weekdays. Keep in mind that at any time the Instructor may be engaged with other students, so responses may not be immediate, but will be provided as soon as possible.

Question: What if I am not comfortable using a computer or working over the internet?

Answer: We recommend that you find someone who is experienced using a computer and the internet and have them show you the basics of how to use a mouse, navigate web pages and access your email account. If you have someone with you during the class to provide technical help, you yourself must understand all class information as it is presented and complete the review quizzes. The class Instructor can assist you if available, but may be engaged with other students. You must take it upon yourself to be prepared to participate in the class. Take some time to familiarize yourself and practice before the class.

Question: What if I don't have an email account?

Answer: You must have your own email account to complete the class and receive a server permit. You may not, under any circumstances, use your employer's email account to take the class. An email address on your employer's system is acceptable, as long as it is specific to you. Anyone can sign up for a free email account through Outlook (Microsoft), Gmail (Google), Yahoo, and many others. You may use the email account of a friend or family member, but it is not recommended. Be aware that your permit application and temporary server permit, which contain your personal information, will be sent to the email account that you use, and will remain there forever, even if the email is "deleted".

Question: What if I pay, but then can't attend or complete the class?

Answer: If the class presentation is unavailable within the window of time that you scheduled to begin the class, either due to technical problems or service disruptions with our email or telephone communications or the website hosting the video presentation, or the class presentation is made unavailable by us, your payment will be refunded or you can reschedule the class at a later time, at your choice. If you are unable to complete the class for another reason, including technical problems with your computer or service disruptions with your internet provider or connection, or you do not attend the entire class, we will allow you to reschedule the class one time only for a later time within 30 days of your original class date and apply your payment. In this circumstance, you will required to complete the class form the beginning. You will need to register for the later class, but you will not need to provide ID, application information or payment again. Be aware that you must complete the entire class according to the instructions and pass the final exam in order to receive a server permit. No refunds will be issued if you miss or do not complete the class, or do not pass the final exam.

Question: What if I don't want to send a copy of my ID over the internet?

Answer: We cannot issue a server permit without a copy of your ID. You can fax, email or text a photo of your ID. We are very diligent in keeping your information secure, and have never had a security breach. You can also send a photocopy of your ID by regular mail, which must be received within 5 business days of completing the class, and will result in a delay in receiving your temporary server permit.

Question: What if my employer is paying for the class and wants my permit sent directly to them?

Answer: Your server permit belongs to you, not your employer (just like your driver's license), even if your employer is paying for the class. Since it contains your personal information, we cannot provide it to anyone other than you without your specific permission. We will, as a courtesy, be happy to send a copy of your permit to your employer, or anyone else. If your employer does not have a pre-existing billing arrangement with us, you must make the request yourself in writing, preferably by email, and let us know where to send your permit.

For employers with pre-existing billing arrangements, we will notify you by email with your temporary permit that we will be sending a copy to your employer unless you request that we do not do so. If you do not request specifically in writing that we not send your temporary permit to your employer, we will consider that your acceptance and permission to send a copy of your permit to your employer.
