Our Schedule / Staying on Pace
The due dates for your class assignments are here.  Please be sure to stay on-task with your work.  You can do so by working through the assignments that are "Due Soon" on your Home Page.  You are expected to complete all of your work in order, and on time.  You're welcome to work ahead, but try not to fall behind.  It's always more difficult to catch up than it is to stay on track.  Contact me if you have any questions!

Please print and keep this chart in a convenient place for reference. Remember to complete at a minimum the assignments that are due each week. You can do more than the assigned number of assignments, but you must do at least the assignments due for each week.
If you have not already done so, schedule your Adult CPR class.
Please check with your instructor to determine if this pace is accepted in your class.


  • Each Segment of the Course Pace Chart contains floating weeks off. These weeks can be used as you need them.
  • Taking time off from course work is an individual choice and is not required.
  • Please discuss your plans for taking time off with your instructor before you take the time off.
  • Informing your instructor before using the time off will allow proper documentation of your absence from the course.
If you have any questions about the pace charts, do not hesitate to talk to your instructor.
