Is the Final Exam also online or is it in person?

Asked by: MichaelR
RE CE & APP CE - Any online courses will be taken completely online. Any classroom courses will be classroom only, no tests or exams are required. APP QE- Online courses will be taken completely online UNLESS a proctored exam is required. Then they have the option to complete it online or on paper.
