Self Study Courses (Monthly)

These courses are structured to allow for maximum flexibility while still ensuring learning of the major objectives and access to a knowledgeable instructor.  This is a self-study course with optional synchronous video meetings. Students will have 1 month to complete the required material. The required material will include watching recorded video lectures of the entire FSPCA curriculum, completing three assignments that are modeled after the FSPCA chapter exercises, and a post-test that covers the major learning objectives covered in the course. Completion of all of these aspects is required to earn a certificate of completion for the course. Additionally, students will have direct access to the instructor in optional weekly Q and A sessions throughout the duration of the course. Students will receive feedback on their assignments from the instructor. 

Same PCQI certificate as the in-person class.                   ​Classes offered by LTSmith Consulting                                $650 and no Travel
