Once you have completed a Unit within a Course, go back and re-answer
every question in that Unit. Your improved score for that Unit will
then be recorded. Please note that the free courses do not allow us
to keep an accurate score. Accurate transcripts are only available
for courses from paid subscriptions.

the My Transcripts screen, which you access from the Course Tools
tab at the left of the course window. Please note that the free courses

Can I return directly to
my last page completed the next time I login?
Yes, in two ways:
The courses automatically use a global bookmark to mark the last page
you were working on. This happens automatically when you click the
EXIT button in the toolbar. Then the next time you sign on with your
UserID and Password and select that course, you will be taken to the
marked location where you left off. This global bookmarking feature
works even if your next log in is from another computer.
You can also bookmark the last page worked on by adding it to your
Bookmarks or Favorites on your individual browser. However this type
of bookmark would not take you to where you last left off if your
next log in is on a different computer, hence a different browser.
And you will still need to go to the Training section front page first
