Successfully Completing a Self-paced Curriculum

Time management is frequently the biggest challenge that users face in completing the writeTrain® program.

Once a start time is agreed to, users have 15 business days* – on average a commitment of approximately 7 hours – in which to complete the course.

Reminders are emailed every 3 days to help users manage completion schedules and avoid last-minute, mad dashes.

The following guide illustrates a schedule that allows users to complete the writeTrain® program at a reasonably steady pace without infringing on valued weekend time.

*Note: Depending upon a program’s starting date, the inclusion of weekend days can result in users having a total of 19 or even 21 days to complete the course.
