Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The first module of the course becomes available immediately upon purchase. Then, each week, for a total of 36 weeks, a new module is released. The course is designed for students to complete a module each week. However, this is a self-paced course, and parents can determine the pace in which their child will approach the released modules. And...there's a perk to this program! If your child needs more time to complete the program outside of the 36 weeks, no problem! Your student has access to the program as long as they need it. Access never ends! This allows your child to take the program at their pace. Plus, they have access to the program even after they finish the course which will allow for an easy review of any of the course's content.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
