The online portion MUST be completed before the first day of the in-person class session in order to continue the course. There are no exceptions. Participants must complete the 8-hour online learning with a score of 80% or higher on the final online test.

Participants who need precourse help to strengthen endurance or stroke skills prior to the course can request a precourse help session with an instructor.
