Please note, for online learning sessions, in order for STC to grant credit for the course and issue a certificate of completion, your camera must be enabled for the duration of the Synchronous Sessions and you must be visible to the instructor.  This applies to all online courses offered by STC.  All asynchronous work is expected to be completed by the scheduled due date, as these assignments are often reviewed/shared in the next session.
