17Who develops the courses?
Content for the Substance Education courses comes from material that was developed by licensed behavioral health professionals and then approved by our Vice President of Clinical Education. Courses also come from information developed by public domain entities. Public domain entities include, but are not limited to, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). All public domain materials are available to be used freely by the public and do not in any way imply endorsement by the publishing entities or authors. Courses developed by public domain entities are marked as such, along with a link to their website. Since this information is free to the public, consumers of our website are paying to complete our examinations and obtain their certificate, not for the materials provided by the public domain entity.
18How long does it take to complete an online course and get my certificate? How do I print my certificate?
You can complete one of our online courses in a matter of hours, based on the number of credits you are accruing. It also depends on your comfort level using computers, online technology and the length of the course material. Courses indicating more hours have more pages to read. Once you have completed and paid for the course, you can immediately download and print a certificate from within your account.
