No. Our courses are designed in small segments so that you can complete them at your own pace. Most times, if you stop in the middle of a video the system should remember where you are. However, as with all technology, there is always the chance that it won’t and you’ll have to start that video over. We put the time length of each video in the lessons so that you can determine if you have enough time to finish it.

If you stop in the middle of a quiz, it is not a big deal, but you will have to start the quiz over again when you return.

When you log back into your course, just click on the continue button to pick up where you left off.
