Q. Will I be insured to offer SMFR to clients online and in-person after completing this course?

A. Once purchased, courses are non-refundable (distance selling laws apply). Full details are in our T&C's at the bottom of this page.
Q. If I can't complete the course within 6 months, can I get an extension?

Q. Is there an exam or any kind of assessment?
