Mark Complete

Throughout the courses you take you will see button labelled “Mark Complete” . When you have read a section and completed all the activities be sure to click this button which will allow you to move on. If you find at any point you are unable to move on check each topic and lesson for “Mark Complete” buttons that you may have missed.




Many activities will include a scenario, a moment to pause and check how well you’ve understood the key points from the previous video or activity before moving on. The scenarios are not scored, you can enter text as to how you feel you would react in this situation before clicking “check” and clicking again to “show solution”.  The text you enter is not saved.
