No, not if you are looking for a cost-free course for continuing education contact hours. It is advertised as no-cost, yet 6 pages in to the course intro pages you find out it will cost $35 for a CNE certificate!!! I specifically categorized my search as cost-free continuing education credits and this course popped up as meeting the criteria on TRAIN 's website. Very disappointing.
