Tutorial Terms and Conditions
Tutorials are intended to give students an opportunity to work on a one-to-one basis with a committed faculty instructor who guides the student through course material. Tutorial courses expose the student to the same textbooks and instructional materials as conventional courses; the tutorial assignments differ from conventional course assignments in that tutorials are designed specifically for individuals rather than for groups. Please review the following course guidelines before you begin the lessons. These guidelines are designed to provide you with specific direction as you proceed.
Tutorial syllabi, outlines, lessons and course-specific forms and information can be accessed through http://www.contractor-licensing.com/. Required books may be ordered through National Contractors Bookstore
