4. How Do I Get My Certificate Of Completion?
The Certificate Of Completion is downloadable, and a link will be emailed, after completing the course.
5. Why Is This Free? (Am I expected to buy something?)
No, not at all. We created this course because, over the years, we have noticed there is some insecurity when it comes to checking for lice. Because we are a salon with a microscope, it was easy for us to create a course to alleviate some of the stress around lice identification. We felt that a video course was the best way to teach lice identification. We hope that nurses/health techs/child care workers/pediatricians nationwide take the course, and tell their coworkers about it.
