  3. Each course consists of the following structure:
    • A set of manuscripts that are like chapters in a book.
    • Each manuscript consists of some number of topics that you progress through.
    • At the end of each manuscript (chapter), there is a practice quiz.
    • After you have progressed through the last manuscript and associated practice quiz, you can take the Final Exam.

  6. When you complete a final exam for a course, you will be able to retrieve your Certificate of Achievement. If you are a member student (Neophyte), a message to headquarters is auto generated to send you your award manuscript. It can, however, take several days before you receive your award manuscript, so be patent.
