What is the difference between this educational program and some other program(s)?
A Great Deal of Difference. This program offers students a “one on one” educational process which means we welcome your phone calls and are available to answer any question you may have. Unlike some programs that are concerned ONLY with the “bottom line”, we are here to educate you. Textbooks (yours to keep) are published and printed by experts in the field, NOT written or printed “in house”.

What is the difference in “online testing” and “proctored testing”?
Students who have enrolled in a course with online testing will receive an email containing their username/password as well as the link to the online testing site. Online testing offers students a more convenient method in completing their quiz and/or final exam. Students can complete their quiz and/or final exam from any computer as long as they have access to the online testing link. In addition, once the final exam has been completed, the results will be provided immediately and the student will have the option of printing their certificate or having it mailed to them. A proctored test is where the final exam is mailed to a third party and the student completes the final exam at the proctor’s location. The main purpose of a proctor is to verify the student’s identity and to monitor the student while they are completing their exam. Proctor qualifications are library, school or notary. When the final exam is completed (in the presence of the proctor) there will be a pre-addressed envelope for the student to mail the exam back to C.E.L.I.  Express grading and faxing the certificate is also available.

Can I retake a test if I fail it?

I have completed a course and need my Certificate of Completion ASAP. What can be done?
If you enrolled in a course with online testing you will be given the opportunity to print out the Certificate of Completion. If you enrolled in a course with proctor testing there will be a form you will fill out upon completing your final exam which you can request Express Grading and Faxing of your certificate.
