The in-person session cannot be conducted without the Online portion, so please give yourself ample time to complete the Online portions before scheduling the in-person session.Participants who do not present a valid Online Completion Report will not be allowed to proceed in the course for certification purpose, but will be given the opportunity to audit the course for experience, however they will not be certified regardless of the success of the In-Person Skills session.
