Free Hiv Aids Course Help

Because of the large number of students taking the Free Hiv Aids course daily we are unable to offer technical support. The most common errors are listed below.

1. The correct passcode is hiv not aids.

2. Problems with CeBroker reporting: the student license number was entered incorrectly on our registration page. There are two places to enter your state license number. The first is for our records. The second is programming set up by CeBroker to transfer the credit to their site. The CeBroker field requires you to enter your license number without the letters. Example: RN12345 would be entered as 12345 in the CeBroker field. If you credit didn't report please reregister with the correct license number (not the course number) and retake the test. Upon successful completion the course credit will report directly to CeBroker.

3. Our course may not count for your profession. If the course credit shows up as 0 (zero) on CeBroker our course is not accepted for your profession.

4. The price update button must be hit on the payment page to receive the course for free. If you entering the passcode and missed the price update button please let us know so we can void out the payment.
