Course Organization

At checkout the student will create a login I.D. and password and have access to the course 24/7. The course is presented in an online E-Book format making the reading material portable if you prefer to work offline. Each reading assignment is then followed by a one or two part quiz presented in a multiple choice format. A series of quiz review questions will guide you so that you will become proficient with the IRS's terminology, guidelines, and procedures and test your understanding of key topics. The answers are submitted online and will be automatically graded. The student will be provided with important feedback and answer key to all quiz questions. Once all of the quizzes are completed, the student will then need to complete a final exam that will review all of the topics covered. The student will receive a pass or fail grade on the final exam but, unlike the quizzes, the student will not be provided with an answer key or any feedback (to comply with IRS guidelines regarding final testing). All final exams must be completed with a passing grade of 70% or better in order to meet the requirement and receive a certificate of completion.


The student has unlimited tries to pass the quizzes and the final exam(s). (Note that the completion of the quizzes is not mandatory). Discussion forums are available within the course. Our "Student Course Forum" is available to chat with other students in the same course and our "General Student Forum" is available to chat with students in all courses. The certificate of completion can be printed by the student within the course and is also emailed to the student immediately following the successful completion of the course. Course completions are then reported to CTEC by Platinum Professional Services. The tax course is available to the student for six months upon registration. Our current courses are based upon the IRS's most recently available tax laws, forms, and schedules. We provide all students with tax updates throughout the year on our Platinum Blog site.
