All cancellation request must be submitted to CourseHorse at [email protected] Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request and be mindful of the timetable described above.

Hello, this course give us any credits or hours?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! Unfortunately, this class will not earn towards any CPE credits nor will the school issue certificates/letters of completion. We currently do not work closely with our schools regarding CPE credits, but it may be something we investigate in the future. For now, we recommend you contact the school directly to inquire about CPE programs.
