What Study Option Is Right For Me?

Why might I pick this option:

  • I’m a self-directed learner and manage time well
  • I need time to dig-in to the materials and absorb the information
  • It makes me more anxious to have a set time schedule
  • I’m out of state and travel is a barrier right now
  • I’m a visual learner and need to see what I’m studying
  • I want to focus on the specifics of my Speciality License
  • I’m not sure when I want to sign up for a workshop yet
  • I want to build my own self-study package and do not need the live, in-person workshop


Why might I pick this option:

  • I’m good with a schedule and deadline- study, workshop, exam
  • I need the structure of a workshop
  • I’m an auditory learner and need to hear what I’m learning
  • I’ve already studied the specifics of my Speciality License
  • A live workshop will give me motivation and focus
  • I want to be able to ask my questions in person to the instructor
  • I enjoy the traditional student-teacher classroom experience
  • I want to build my own study program to include the live, in-person workshop
