Pre-exemption Assessment – Each course, except the Introduction, has a Pre-exemption Assessment that will allow a learner who chooses to take the assessment and scores 100% to obtain a completion without taking the course content. 

Post-Quiz – After viewing each course, except the Introduction, you will have to take a Post-Quiz. The default passing score of the Post-Quiz is 75%. If you do not pass the Post-Quiz, you will be required to retake the course.
