That means that your credit card details are secure and can not be stolen during this transaction. Enter your credit card details and your personal details (some will already be populated for you by us). These details are all required to confirm that you are indeed the owner of the credit card. When you have entered those details, you will be taken to a confirmation screen:
This screen confirms the amount including VAT, and confirms which course you are signing up for. Click the Pay button to complete the transaction. PayPal will then authorize the payment, and take you to a final screen when that has been completed, which looks like this:

It tells you if you have successfully completed the assessments, and the date of that completion, or specifies "Not Completed" if you have yet to complete the assessment. If you have successfully completed the assessment, then you can click on the certificate icon there for a printable copy of your Course Completion Certificate, and we would appreciate it if you would submit a review of the course, to assist others in their course selection.
The "My Recent Courses" box lists your courses in order, showing the 10 most recently purchased courses, if you wish to see more than 10, then click on "Full List" (in the bottom right hand corner of the box) to see all of the courses that you have purchased with us over the years.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority and ILEX do not require us to notify them of your completion of each course, although we do keep records for them.
Once you have successfully completed the assessment, you can access a Completion Certificate on our website, which you can print out for your records. One way to do this is to click on the certificate icon in the "My Recent Courses" box on your personalised homepage. Alternatively, you can find a complete list of certificates in the "My Account" section.
The Main Menu box is located on the left hand side of your personalised home page. At the bottom of the list, you can find the "My Account" option, which takes you to a personalised list of your profile details, registered courses, invoices and certificates, as well as any vouchers that you have earned for referring a friend to us.
Once you click on "My Account" you can use the tabs to choose which option you wish to view. This first screen shot shows you the "My Courses" tab, which provides you with the same information as you will find in the "My Recent Courses" box on your personalised homepage.
If you are looking for a complete record of your certificates, then click on the "Certificates" tab under "My Account".
This tab shows you all of your Completion Certificates at a glance, so you can see exactly when you successfully completed each course's assessment. Click on the course title to see the certificate and you can then print it out for your records.
If you want a "paid" invoice for the course, click on the "Invoice..." link on the course page. This will take you to a page showing your paid invoice, which you can print out for your records. To get back from that page to the course, just press the Back button on your browser.
Alternatively, go to "My Account" and then click on the "Invoices" tab to see a complete list of all invoices for courses that you have purchased from us.
Simply click on the course title that you are interested in to view that invoice. You can then print it out for your records.
If you want to print the entire course out, for example to read it while you are on the way to Court, there is a "Printable Page" button on each course which takes you to a web page which is suitable for printing. To get back from that page to the course, just press the Back button on your browser.
