Do I read chapters; do assignments on an "honor system"?

Yes. The assignments, if any, do not need to be turned in to anyone. Rather, they are there to help you further comprehend the material covered in the assigned readings.

Do I only take exams online?

Yes. The exams are only available online and will be available Monday through Friday during the exam week. Before you begin, your proctor must enter a password, which they receive, via e-mail the week before the exam. You will have 2 hours in which to complete the exam. We do not release any of the questions or answers. The exams are found in the "Lessons" tab. The exams make up your course grade.

What is a proctor?

A proctor is a person who will administer your exams. He or she is responsible for protecting the integrity of the exams and will return the signed proctor sheet to us upon completion of each exam. The proctor may be a supervisor (someone who is not taking the course), human resources representative, Affiliated Association staff member or other responsible party. The proctor may not be a relative, spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend.


What if I miss a week due to business travel? Can I catch up?

Since you study at your own speed, missing a week is not a problem. You decide when to catch up. However, exam week is a different story. If you realize that you will not have access to a computer or to your proctor during an exam week, let NACM know right away. We can arrange for you to make-up the exam.

Is the class designed merely for Monday through Friday?

Yes/No. It is true that exams are only offered Monday through Friday. However, students are on their own schedule with readings, assignments and quizzes.

Can I see the questions I got wrong after I take an exam?

No. It is against our policy to release exams, as we reserve the right to reuse exam questions in the future. However, the instructor will provide feedback and study tips
