Thank you for your inquiry and interest in our courses. Certain certifications require the submission of assignments, others do require an exam. If you email us a request, we can send you an information kit on the different certifications attainable. Yes if you are dependent on the trial then it would be best to allocate enough time to complete the course within 30 days. However, if you can secure the software independently beyond that time, you have one year of access to the online course.
Hope this helps, please feel free to contact us if you require any additional information.
