This program follows a Competency Based Education (CBE) format. CBE measures your mastery of the subject material (rather than how many hours you spent in class) to determine if you earn credit. CBE is about what you know and can do, not how many hours you spent learning it.

CBE courses contain the same assignments, instruction videos, quizzes, etc., as the regular online version of the class. The main difference is that in a CBE class, most of those lessons and activities are optional (and not graded). You will complete as many (or few) as you need to learn the material. When you feel you’re ready, you can take the assessment. If you pass with an 80% or above, you may move on to the next section. If you score below 80%, you will need to review the material before retaking the assessment. Students are expected to keep up on work, attend labs and externships. Falling behind may result in failure of courses and an inability to complete the program. For more detailed information about Competency Based Education (CBE), please visit:
