Special limited-time pricing
I have a few questions. 1) Can I enroll privately and pay on my own or does it have to be through my facility of work. 2) Do you get the CEU upon completing the MDS courses or when you pass the exam. 3) Is there an extra cost to take the exam or is it inclded in this discount price.
Hi Karen — 1) Yes, you can enroll privately and pay privately. 2) You get the CEU certificate upon completion of each course. You get the CMAC certification at the completion of the entire curriculum. 3) Everything for certification is included in this price. There is no final certification exam. Each course has a short exam and you must pass all exams at 80% or higher. Once you complete all required courses, you will earn the CMAC. (There is an annual recertification fee.)
what is the difference between this certification and the AANAC MDS Certification
Hi Barbara — Our recommendation is to research and compare both programs, as they both offer different advantages/requirements. Here are the links:

That’s up to Relias since the training is offered through their company, but I believe they intend to offer it at least through the end of May.
