You must be provided with your own copy of the current version of the mandatory course material at the start of your course, which should be retained upon completion of the SSSTS Refresher online training course. While download purchases should be completed and received shortly after purchase, in some circumstances they make take up to 48 hours.

You must show the invigilator that you are alone in the room and you must be visible via the video at all times.
