How long does the course take & how long do I have to complete?
The online courses are self-paced. With the Licensing coursework, generally 10-15 hours a week is a good schedule to keep, which breaks a 90 hour course package into 5-8 weeks, and a 168 hour course package into 10-12 weeks, for example. But you can move at your pace which may be much quicker—or slower. You have a year from enrollment to access courses unless otherwise noted, and if you go beyond a year a small course reactivation fee will apply. (*Note on CE courses: many states do have limits however on the number of hours of CE that licensees can complete in a day)
How does the course work online?
Our online courses are very user-friendly. You’ll have the freedom of making your own schedule: login and out as often as you like, at any time you like. You’ll login to our secure site with your username and password (established once you enroll) and in your Student Account under “Active Courses” you’ll be able to open each course and work through it at your pace—reading material, taking multiple choice quizzes and exams and completing exercises. Exams can be retaken so you don’t risk failing out of class!

Can I access the course from more than one computer
Yes! Our courses are web-based so you can access them from any computer or device that has internet access, Mac or PC.
What if I have questions while I am working?
Online Q&As are available 24/7 where you can review past questions or post new ones directly inside any course for an instructor answer via email. You may also reach instructors via phone and email during VanEd business hours, 9-5 M-T (MST).
How do I get credit for completing a course?
Upon completion of any CE course or licensing package, a course certificate or state form will be available to print online in your student account. States have different processes once you complete your education, and full instructions will be available online in your student account. VanEd will report all education completions to State Commissions or Boards that require it.
Are there payment plans or financial aid?
As a vocational school, VanEd does not offer financial aid through our company. We do offer multiple payment plans to help break up the course fee for course packages. Split payments allow you to pay the course fee over two or three months by check or credit card. You will be given the option to select a payment plan right on the purchase screen for all packages. Tuition assistance plans such as VA/GI Bill grants need to be confirmed by the student to ensure that our online vocational training is acceptable.
