What do I need before I start the course?

You are NOT required to complete any steps prior to starting the course besides registration and tuition payment. However, if you’d like to get ahead and reduce your out-of-pocket costs, you should gather your childhood vaccination documents from any medical provider (records from any state or country are accepted) and order your course textbook and workbook.
All other items must be completed after coursework begins.
