About the Program

There is a lesson for each month of the year. You may want to take a year to complete the program. Each lesson has an experience page that suggests observations you can make in the field that will enhance your learning. You may complete the lessons at your own pace. Along with the lesson focus you’ll receive a page of questions that point to what you need to know for an open book test given in May or June, following completion of the program. The test will consist of twelve questions, one from each lesson, taken directly from the list of questions provided to you with your lessons.
