The three-months will start from the time each user logs in for the first time. You can start at anytime. There is no restriction on when users can get started once they have joined.
Question: How long will it take to complete?
The videos are 30-45 minutes long and there are 7 videos, so allow 4 ½ hours of video watching time. After each video there are three multiple choice questions and you will be asked for two comments.
