When Does My Course Expire?
The expiration dates of all courses are listed in the course description. You can review the expiration dates of purchased courses by logging in to your account and accessing the “My Activities” section to review your list of pending activities. Select a course from the list to view the course description page. If the page is inaccessible, the course has already expired.
What Happens If I Don’t Pass An Exam?
