Students of this online anger management class have certain responsibilities:

  1. All students are required to participate in class sessions. These sessions have both content, multi-media and quizzes within those sessions. In order for a student to progress to the next section of material, they must pass all quizzes. This ensures that each student learns the necessary information and is ready to review a new set of materials.
  2. All sessions are timed. Students can not simply click through pages and take the quizzes without comprehending the material. The program is set up for the average reader (150 words per minute). Students are required to complete each session which mimics a live in person session.
  3. To receive a certificate of completion signed by Dr. Ari Novick, all students must pass a 50 question final exam with a passing score of 70%. Unlike most live classes, we require competency of materials and believe that a final exam is a fair way to achieve this goal.
  4. All students can print out a “proof of enrollment” form when they sign up for the course, but all certificate of completions are signed by Dr. Novick personally with a stamp of authenticity. If this stamp is not on the certificate, the certificate is not valid.
  5. Any court official may request, at no charge, a complementary copy of our anger management curriculum. We will also allow any court official who wishes to view our program to call our office and we will set up a guest user registration at no charge.

Why is a superior way of completing an anger management class requirement?

  1. Online education has become of the most acceptable ways of completing educational requirements as evidenced through almost all major universities offering online classes.
  2. There are several advantages to taking our online anger management vs. a face to face class. Some of these advantages to the client include:
    • A reduction of cost to the client vs. a face to face program. Our program is about ½ the cost of a live program.
    • Our program is self-paced and can be taken from any internet based computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    • Participants do not have the excuse that they couldn’t find a class close to work or home.
    • Participants will not loose wages from work because the classes can be worked on during lunch hours or during breaks.
    • Interaction with the client is much easier because it is not in a group setting; therefore individual questions and requests can be answered on a one/one basis.
