Some courses require you to find a mentor or peer. A mentor should be a qualified expert in the topic of your NextGenU.org course — they might be a professor at your university who is offering this training as a course under their supervision, a local practicing professional who is willing to spend some time teaching you, or someone remotely who you’ve identified through your networks.
The requirements for a suitable mentor are:

A peer can be someone who is taking the course with you. Invite a friend or co-worker to take the course with you or contact us and we may connect you with a pool of potential peers so that you can complete the peer activities.
Every learner has full access to course materials, but some courses have academic prerequisites for obtaining a certificate. For example, Emergency Medicine is a course for advanced practice healthcare providers who may intubate patients. To earn a certificate, a learner should be studying to become a physician, advanced practice nurse, or physician assistant. Other courses, such as Epidemiology, require a bachelor’s degree to receive the certificate. For a full list of course requirements see the home page for the course.
Everything from registration to coursework, peer interactions, testing, and provision of a certificate are all free.
