*In addition to courses created by our writing team, we also use government publications for continuing education. While these courses are much more "textbooky" than our original works, we carefully choose publications that are information-dense and contain material that will be especially helpful to individuals seeking initial certification/licensure. After choosing the right publications, our writing team creates a user-friendly pretest/posttest and may attach additional insights to improve the learning experience. We have found that several organizations and government entities produce phenomenal publications that provide the knowledge (facts and figures) needed to pass state boards and keep skills sharp.
