4. Register with us.

Once your course selection is made, click on the link provided on the course home page to take the course online. Be sure to look in the CERTIFICATE program category if you need the certificate (CEUs) for certification by ACSI or a similar organization. You will then encounter a log in page asking if this is your first visit to CC.com or if you are a returning student.

Click on “Create new account.” This will take you to a registration form. Fill in the form completely. Write down your username and password so you don’t forget them. Click on the “Create my new account” button at the bottom of the form. You’ll be sent a confirmation email. Click on that link to do the confirmation step.

If it’s a free course, you’ll immediately be taken to the course home page. If the course you choose is a certificate course, you’ll be directed to the PayPal payment system. You can pay using a credit card, debit card, or a PayPal account. Once that is done, you’ll be directed to the course home page.

WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU CREATE A BOOKMARK FOR THIS PAGE. If you want to bookmark your location in a course, simply use your browser’s bookmark function to save the exact location of your study. When you return to the course on the next visit, select that bookmark and you will be directed to the login page. Once you login, you will be taken to your bookmark location.

5. Begin your studies!

When you’ve chosen your course, you are ready to begin your study. Use your User Name to log in, along with the Password you chose when you registered. Cookies must be enabled on your browser for a successful login. For example, on Microsoft Internet Explorer, any privacy setting set to “Medium” or lower should work fine (See menu Tools/Internet Options/Privacy).

Start with the Course Syllabus as the first step in your study. The Course Syllabus outlines the learning requirements for the course. Then, on the home page of each course, you will find instructions on how to navigate through a course. You will also find a complete index of all lessons in the course, allowing you to quickly jump to specific content. Start with the first lesson, and follow the Course Index through the course. Each course has a Course Discussion—a place to answer the questions in the course that are specifically designed to help you apply what you have learned and to also learn from other students enrolled in the course. It’s also a great idea to keep a notebook handy to keep a Course Journal while you’re studying the course.
