Ivy Tech cannot guarantee that any student will pass a certification or licensing exam.  Your success will be determined by several factors beyond the instruction you are given in the classroom including your test-taking skills, your willingness to study outside of class, and your satisfactory completion of appropriate practice exams.  Certification and licensure exam questions are drawn from databases of hundreds of possible questions; therefore, a thorough understanding of the subject matter is required.  Ivy Tech’s coursework is designed to assist you in understanding the material sufficiently to provide a firm foundation for your studies as you prepare for the exam.

>> All courses are 4 hours long, in person, and cost $50 per person.
