To complete this course, you are required to pass an assessment. The pass mark is 80%, but it's easy to do and the learner can take the assessment as many times as needed until they have passed.

The assessment consists of multiple-choice questions. For each question, the learner selects their answer and then submits it. Once they select submit, they move to the next question and will not be able to go back and change their answer.

If they exit or close the window before completing the assessment, when the learner returns to the course, they will be able to resume the assessment from where they left off.
