Aviatrix Certified Engineer - Frequently Asked Questions

What are the pre-requisites for the ACE Associate course?
Knowledge of networking concepts is helpful but not required.

Do I need to complete the training in a certain amount of time? 
As the course is self-paced, you can access the content indefinitely and work through it on your own time. However, we recommend completing the course, including the exam, within 2-4 weeks.

I cannot finish the self-paced course. It appears "locked" and won't allow me to progress forward.
You must complete at least 90% of each module and score at least 70% on each knowledge check in order to proceed. If you did both of those and are still unable to move forward, you can try a few different options:
- Clear your browser cache
- Try a different browser
- Turn off corporate VPN
- Use a different Internet provider
- Use your mobile/cell phone hotspot to connect to Internet
- Restart/reboot your laptop/computer/tablet

How do I schedule the exam? 
You will schedule your exam in the final module of your Associate course titled “About the Exam.” There is an embedded calendar. Be sure to click “confirm,” you also receive a confirmation email. 
Please be mindful of time zones when scheduling. The calendar displayed within Teachable will be in your time zone. 
The confirmation email will contain an “add to calendar” button that will populate a calendar appointment for the correct time with all necessary details.
