You pay for the class, but they put a time limit on how long you have to take it. Don't waste your money here. Get a different class.

I signed up for this course with high expectations, and I will not purchase another course through this platform. Pros: Online/Virtual, Easy to navigate, No issues with the voucher Cons: I took all 3 of the courses related to this one, and the course is a series of videos that you watch that are all mostly 1-10 minutes long. There is not a way to save any of the material in the event you want to go back and review content. Once you have completed the course, you will no longer be able to access the course, or the content after 60 days, unless you pay to extend the view access. Also, if you happen to fail a module and the resit, you have to pay $4.99 to retake any of the module exams that you miss, which kind of defeats the intent of getting the course from Groupon at a discounted rate. I have taken multiple courses on Groupon, but this one is by far one that I absolutely will not purchase again. I was disappointed with the content, as it is content that you can find from the internet, so that was even more disheartening. I finished up the courses but will not recommend this merchant to anyone that is looking to gain knowledge or even learn something that is not already out there through a google search engine.
