How to take this course tutorialThis tutorial is designed to help you with any questions you might have while taking the AACEA course and to give you a general idea of what to expect before you begin the course.
BasicsThere are 8 total Modules throughout this course that you will need to pass before taking the final exam and thus completing our Alcohol Seller/Server course. Each Module has its own topic/s; however, they all have the same general format. Once you have completed a Module, you will be required to take a quiz reflecting on what you learned in that Module in order to move on to the next Module. You must achieve a score of at least 80% on a Module quiz. If you fail a Module quiz once, you will need to review the entire Module and then take a second quiz. If you fail the second quiz, your account will be reset and you will be required to restart the course from the beginning.
Note: You do not need to take the entire course in one sitting. The program saves your progress every time you complete a Module quiz. If you would like to take a break, make sure you have completed a Module and then log out.
Throughout the course you will be asked security questions in order to verify your identity. You must answer these security questions within 60 seconds. If you do not answer or fail 30% of these security questions you will be dropped from the course. (Note: when a security question pops up, you MUST type it in the same way you entered it when you first registered, this includes capitalizations, spaces, periods etc..)
What do the Modules consist of?
The Modules consist of videos and interactive activities. There is a red timer at the bottom of each Module which prevents you from continuing on to the next page of a Module until the timer is up. Videos will automatically direct you to the next page as soon as they are finished playing; however, interactive activities will require you to click the next button at the bottom of the screen in order to move on to the next page of the Module. The next button will show up immediately after the timer is up. If you cannot see the timer at the bottom of the screen you may need to scroll the page down.
Different types of interactive activities:Each interactive activity will include instructions. The following is a more detailed explanation for a majority of the different types of activities.
Multiple Response: These activities will have a question, as well as multiple correct answers you can click on.
