A few notes before you delve into the course. In order to receive a certificate of completion for the course, you will need to access and read the various resources and participate in the required activities.

How to Recognize Required Activities

All required components of the course are recognizable by the checkbox located on the right side of the items label. In this screenshot of the course site, take note of the two items listed.

Clicking the link "Issuing CAP Alerts" will always return you to the main course page.

2. When on an activity page, locate links along the bottom of the page and a "Jump to..." menu. The links go to the previous and next activity. The "Jump to..." menu lists all activities in the course; selecting one will link to that activity.
