How do our online courses work?
BaysideCEU is an approved provider by numerous state boards as well as nationally to provide continuing education. The course approvals are listed under each title in the course description boxes. Once you successfully complete a course and pass the test, you will be allowed to print your certificate online and it will be reported to your state board.
What course do I take?
Different boards have different requirements. You would need to contact your board to see the specific requirements. We often bundle courses for specific boards as the renewal dates come close. When you take a bundle it will list the board approvals and will generally have all of the requirements or all of the core requirements necessary.
How do I buy a course or a bundle once I know which one I need?
Once you locate the title you need through the courses tab or through the category on the left, right under the course description you will see “Take Course”. Click on this to add the course to your shopping cart located on the very top, right of the screen. From here you are able “Checkout” and process the payment for the course. Once you purchase a course the lesson is now located in your My Courses pull-down menu on your My Profile page (tab across the top of the screen).
Can I swap courses in a bundle?
If you would like to swap courses offered in a bundle please purchase the bundle as is and then find other titles you would like to switch and email the request to ContactUs@BaysideCEU.com. We are generally able to switch out courses within the hour.
After I buy a course, where do I go to take it?
Once you have successfully purchased the course click on the “My Profile” tab located on the top, center of the page. After that page has loaded, you will see a box labeled “Courses I am Registered In”. In that box, there is a My Courses pull-down menu, click on that and then select the course you would like to begin taking. Once you click on the course title scroll down to the lesson in light blue.
Once I exit the course, can I go back? And how?
If you have exited a course and would like to get back to it you will select “My Profile” tab located on the top, center of the page. After that page has loaded, you will see a box labeled “Courses I am Registered In”. In that box, there is a My Courses pull-down menu, click on that and then select the course you would like to resume taking.
Do I have to pay to take a test again if I do not receive a 70% or higher?
You may retake a test as many times as you need without additional fees.
How long do I have to wait for my test score and my certificate upon passing?
The test is scored online immediately upon completion. Once a passing score is achieved, you can print your certificate right from your own home or office. You can also print a certificate at a later time from your transcript.
How do I print my certificate?
If you would like to print your certificates after you have successfully completed a course, your first step would be to select “My Profile” at the top of your screen. Once that page has loaded you want to find the box that is labeled “Courses I Am Registered In”. In that box, there is an option that reads “My Transcripts” and click that, then download and print the PDFs provided.
