Foundational Information & Exams

There is plenty of text material provided for the student to answer the majority of questions. However, a few questions will require looking up the answers on Google. Certainly “on-line” training is nowhere as effective as a teacher in the classroom directing a Socratic discussion. But the element of searching for the answer to the questions in the text and Google searches will help bring a portion of the training into the Socratic methodology realm.
