Each Gap course consists of 35 total hours. The first 27 hours are self-paced online. The final 8-hours are in a one day, face to face assessment at Castine. Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of the assessment.

Completion of online modules is a prerequisite for attending the assessment day. The system will prompt you to select a live session date to complete the course at Castine.
NOTE: Once you have started the online modules you can request an assessment date, but be aware you MUST complete the online modules to take the assessment (we verify!)

Up to 2 working days may pass from the time you register and pay to the time you receive confirmation and activation details for the online portion.  Please contact the Continuing Education Office if you completed registration/payment but did not receive activation details in an email from  (not the e-market) after two working days.

There is no limit to the number of students who can be online at one time and modules are self- paced. Progression through the courses includes a quiz or email exchange with the instructor at the end of each module before moving to the next module.  Instructors will also be available by email to answer content questions within 24 -48 hrs.
