Accessing Lessons

CASTI online lessons are designed to be simple and easy to use. There is no complicated software to install. Accessing lessons is as easy as opening a PDF file.

After registering for an online course, an email will be sent to you containing a link to the online material and a passcode. (Passcodes are sent after course registration has been processed. Please allow 1 business day for processing of your registration.) Upon logging in with your passcode, you will see a screen similar to the one below.

The left side of the screen will contain a list of lessons for you to complete. To access them, simply click on them. Upon clicking on a module on the left, a pdf file will open within your browser; you are now ready to work through your online module.

Exam Preparation Guidance

As you read through the lessons, you will notice several boxes similar to the one shown below:

These guidance boxes are provided to help direct candidates to specific areas of study during preparation for the examination.

Some guidance comes in the form of notes about specific sections of the Code documents expected to be covered in the exam. Some guidance comes in the form of notes about specific types of questions you may encounter in the exam. Some guidance will draw attention to important concepts that must be clearly understood. And some guidance will highlight problematic exam questions common to the exam.

Submitting Lessons

CASTI Online Training offers in depth answers. When you reach the end of each module, you will submit your answers using the green Submit button at the end. You will then be automatically graded.

Every completed module will have the answers to the questions identified with a green arrow. If applicable, there will also be a codebook reference paragraph listed within the arrow that tells you where to find the answer.

At the end of the module where the Submit button was, you will find a score based on how many questions you answered correctly. Where applicable, some questions will have detailed solutions which can be found at the end of the module.
