Through Career Academy's new $99 Certified Learner Membership, students are provided with self-paced and on-demand video training that allows students to pause, re-watch videos, or even skip around if they so choose. At the end of each course, the student is given a review quiz to assess how well they absorbed the material, so as to ensure that the student has a firm understanding of the course’s most important concepts. What’s more is that Career Academy offers training that caters to all levels of expertise from beginner to advanced.
