Taking a Course
Dexterity PD courses are offered anytime, anyplace! You simply enroll in the course and get started at your convenience.

We recommend speakers or headphones for the video components of courses. Any additional materials, including suggested tools and equipment, are clearly indicated in the course description.
Laptop or Desktop: For best results, we suggest using Google Chrome as your browser.
Tablet or Phone: For best results, we suggest downloading our mobile app (available on Android and IOS). Click to Download If you do not use the App we suggest using Google Chrome as your browser and have your device in landscape mode.
Each course is labelled with the expected amount of time for completion. This length is based on the amount of time our testers took to complete the course materials and activities at a moderate pace. You may find that it takes you less or more time and this may vary based on subject matter and your abilities. You do not have to complete the course content in one sitting.
You can complete a course in one sitting, or you may take the course in multiple sittings – the course will remember where you left off. You are also able to review what you have previously completed.
If you have a question about course content, please send this to firstname.lastname@example.org. Dexterity PD will contact the course instructor where required and provide a response. Questions we receive are integrated into the biannual course updates and review.
Course Credits & Completion
Each course description includes an approvals section and the “Course Approvals” tab lists approvals by association. We submit courses on a rolling basis to associations and these sections are updated regularly with new approvals. We also post on social media when new approvals are received. Please email us at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
Associations that have adopted the STRiVE Quality Assurance program do not provide pre-approvals for courses. Instead, individuals are required to set professional goals. An individual must complete two learning activities relevant to each of their goals.
Depending on the goals that you set for yourself, you may find a relevant Dexterity PD course. One Dexterity PD course is equivalent to one learning activity.
We have helpfully provided samples of how each Dexterity PD course relates to the STRiVE competencies in the course description. Note that there are many other ways of linking a course to the STRiVE competencies and your learning goals than the examples provided.
Your certificate is downloadable by logging into your account and navigating to the completed course. The green “Start Learning Now” button will now state “Download Your Certificate”. You may re-download this certificate at any time.
