WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Once we receive payment for the class we will email the materials that need to be read. Once you have finished reading the materials we will send you your
logins to take the online course and exams. Next the mock collections are done via webcam. The final step is to email your completed chain of custody training forms
to Transmetron for review. If they are “Error Free” as the DOT regulates certificates will be created and emailed.
IS THERE A TIME LIMIT FOR GETTING IT DONE?
Yes, 120 days from the date of purchase.
Each online classs is a "study and train at your own speed" course. These classes are done at your own pace. Get it done and overwith quickly or take your time and really dive into the materials. It is up to you! For the DOT BAT course, the DOT requres that you complete the Proficiencies withing 30 days from the date you complete the online course (a DOT regulated mandate).

If I fail the written exam (less than 80% correct answers) can I take it again?
Yes, but additional study/training may be required (no extra charge to you for this)
