An individual must answer 75% of the exam questions correctly (according to established protocols) in order to pass. Examinations will be given online, and must be taken within one week of the AOEE training. In the event that an individual does not earn a score of 75% or greater, the individual will have the opportunity to take one retest. In the event the individual does not pass the second exam with a score of 75% or greater, all sections of the classroom and practical training must be repeated in order to pursue accreditation. Published training fees will apply.
Homework (6 hours) – Homework assignments will be sent to individuals via email. These assignments pertain to methodology learned in class. The homework must be submitted within a time frame provided in each homework package (approximately 30 days). Upon submission of completed homework, the homework will be evaluated and graded.
