We've been teaching since 1982, and were the first major company to offer online education, starting in California in 1998. We advertise nationally in Journals and newsletters and on the Internet. A major benefit to having your material appear on our site is the publicity; with over 700,000 hits per month, many of our authors receive client referrals and offers to write chapters and further articles by virtue of being on the website. We require students to certify that they they have taken the course, which we keep on file for four years. Our tests are graded online, so immediate feedback is given to students. Our refund policy is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

3. your CV for our files
4. a short write-up of the material in the course
5. a few learning objectives (measurable, quantifiable) and
6. a post-test of approximately 7 - 10 objective (multiple choice or T/F) questions per unit.
We can send you a sample post-test if that would help.

We can help you with ALL of these items.
