I am having trouble viewing my course.

The course is provided in .pdf format, so any .pdf reader should open the course.

You can download Adobe Reader for free. If you downloaded adobe reader and you still can’t open your course, please make sure that adobe reader is installed.


Is there a deadline for completing a course?

Although there is no deadline for course completion, a timeline is included with every course to guide your pace. I have a sincere interest in your education process, and regularly check in with students via email to answer questions and gauge progress.


I can’t complete my purchase because my email address is already registered.

This means that you have already created an account. Maybe you previously abandoned a purchase at the PayPal page, or you’ve previously purchased a different course.

What you need to do:

  1. Click the “student login” link on the top menu bar.
  2. Enter your username and password. If you do not remember your username or password, you can retrieve it here. You can enter either your username or email address.
  3. After successfully logging in, navigate back to the course you wish to purchase and proceed to checkout.


I’m getting a blank page after submitting an exam.

After you click “submit” when finishing an exam, a certificate and/or exam report should appear on your screen. A copy of the report for your exam and certificate is automatically sent to the email address you provided.

I also receive a copy, notifying me of a successful completion of a course or practice exam. I keep these reports for my records (in case you get audited in the future) and use the information I receive to enter completed course credits into CE Broker for Florida massage licensees.

Every once in a while I receive a report from an exam taker about a “blank page” appearing after submitting a test. This results in no certificate or email for the exam taker or me.

I have sent repair tickets into the exam service I use several times. From the tests they have done they have determined the problem is not with our server or our exam service; it is often a firewall issue for the test taker. Unfortunately, this problem is out of our control.

However, this problem is usually reported by exam takers using Safari as their browser.

If you submit an exam and receive a blank page, you need to retake the exam (I suggest using a different browser: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer). This way you have proof you completed the course, and I will have the proof of you completing the courses for my records.

If changing browsers does not solve your problem, please contact me at or (877) 515-9971.
