Course Format
This a 12-hour seminar is available in distance learning format, containing both asynchronous-learning at your own pace and synchronous virtual instruction.  The instructor-led synchronous virtual instruction is 1:1 instruction and is scheduled with the student upon successful completion of the asynchronous portion of the course.

Online Instruction (10 hours): Instruction and application of 12 core functions and TAP 21 in testing environment. Your will review each of the 12 core functions and the associate practice skills.  Information will be provided in reading and recorded lectures.  Each of the functions will conclude with a practice test.

Live Synchronous Individualized Instruction (1 hour): Upon completion of you online course, you can participate in one of the schedule group discussion and test application session.  This session will cover test prep skills, the “psychology” of test taking and specific test taking skills.  This will be provided in video conferencing format.  Additionally, during this session you will have an opportunity to clarify any content.

After the completion of both sessions, you will complete a full 150 “mock” examination that is structured like the LCDC and based off ICDC, NAADAC and NCAC exam materials.  You may take this exam as many times as you like.

Optional Additional Instruction (1 hour): The student may schedule up to one hour of individual test coaching after they take their mock exam.
