A:After the course is opened, there will be a total of 3 months for you to study the course as much as you want. You can log in for further study and assessment anytime, anywhere, and unlimited times. This is a 10-week course, and many physicians can complete it in 6-8 weeks. You can still review after you get the certification. If you are too busy to complete it within 3 months, please contact us and we will extend the deadline for another 3 months.

A:This course currently offers a studying period of up to 6 months. This course was originally designed for doctors to pass the test and obtain certification within 3 months. However, to let physicians/dentists to have the opportunity to study and review during the clinical practices, we specially extended the course period to 6 months.

A:TelePlus and Penn University understand that doctors are busy , so the principle of course design is to assume that doctors take 2-3 hours a week to study, then all learning and certification can be completed within 10 weeks. Penn presupposes the time that the doctor needs to stay for each class (each chapter is different). If only count the time of content broadcasting and do not include the time for the doctors to understand, organize, summarize, absorb, and pass the test, the time is about 6 hours. Based on feedbacks, if add the time for the physicians/dentists to summarize, absorb, understand, organize, and test, the total estimated time is 20 to 30 hours.
