Q & A

 

COURSEWORK QUESTIONS

Q: Do I need any kind of degree in order to take your courses?

Absolutely not. At Rett University we believe that knowledge empowers and therefore we want to share the best possible content with anyone who is working with an individual with Rett Syndrome.

Q: How do your online courses work?

  • Our online courses are self-paced webinars. You do not need to be in front of your computer at any assigned date or time.
  • They include resource PDFs that you can download and print.
  • At the end of each course, you are given a certificate of completion.
  • Registration includes unlimited access to your online course for one year.

Q: Are Rett University’s courses accredited?

Right now, Rett University does not offer accreditation. However, we hope to offer accreditation in the near future.

Q: How long does it take to complete a course?

Because the courses are self-paced, only you can tell how long the course will truly take, and if you are able to complete it in a particular time frame, considering your other work, home, and life responsibilities. Once you purchase a course you have unlimited access for one year. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
