The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation has temporarily removed the normal proctoring requirement for students taking online courses. Until this emergency has abated, a proctor is no longer required to be present during your exam. Students must instead print out and sign the Continuing Education Attestation of Personal Responsibility Form, which will be provided to you along with your exam. This form requires individuals to attest that they have not received outside assistance while completing the online course exam.
This course was developed to meet the long-term care ongoing training requirements in this state and provide students with 4 hours of continuing education.
