The three hour presentation is broken down into 12, roughly 10-minute segments numbered 1 through 12. The three hour presentation is broken down into smaller segments for ease of video streaming, for viewing convenience, and to not inconvenience the viewer should the viewer’s internet connection become unexpectedly interrupted. At the end of each short segment, there will be several content mastery questions that the viewer must pass at 80% or better to continue to the next segment. These content master questions are part of the way we ensure that viewers participate in the training, are a requirement from several of the approval boards, and are important to LeafWing For Professionals in achieving the goal of ensuring high quality training for professionals.
