I am doing the CPL course now. I have just started, finished the first chapter last night. I am very impressed. The information is presented well, quizzes seem to keep you on track after each subsection or topic. Chapter quiz slapped me and told me to pay better attention. If you have a question, there is a forum for posting it to. Like any online course or self study program, I think the discipline to stay focused is the hardest part. Going to a classroom, the instructor talks for a few hours, we go home and study so you kinda need to treat this online format the same way imho. Watch the videos, do the reading, take the quizzes. Review what is not sinking in. Online does not mean easier, just more convenient. Or, in my case, available.

For me, king of distractions, I am trying to stay focused... ask me in three months. But the course format, I think, is very well done. Must work as Transport Canada continue to approve it. It is up to the student to be successful.

I hope that helps you.
Cheers
Shawn

Yup, as said above: definitely up to the student to be successful...requires self discipline. The videos are great but can be long and time consuming, after a while I just ended up flipping through the slides and doing the quizes. If I really was lost, I'd review using the videos, which often cleared everything up for me.

Did their IATRA course, gets my vote :smt023
