I got my Basic Certification a long time ago. I’m feeling a bit rusty, but can I still take the course?
Absolutely! We are committed to preparing you for the exam.
I’d like to take the course, but I don’t want to take a test at the end.
That works for us, too! You will receive the full training course, but don’t need to take the exam at the end. If you’re not sure at this time, you can change your mind later.
So, does that mean I don’t have to take the test if I’m already certified?
Correct! You can take this course to brush-up or expand your skill set, or perhaps as an opportunity to delve into more fight-scenework.
