If you have questions about scheduling your PTCU courses, download this tip sheet that includes exam windows, product expiration information, and sample course schedules. Additional course planning resources are available on Partner Resource Central (PRC) in the “Plan My Course” folder.

Product Expiration Reminders

Be sure that your students are aware of the expiration date for their PayTrain Level 1 and Level 2 programs. Regardless of when they are purchased/activated, PayTrain products always expire in September of the year following the release year. For example:

  • PayTrain 2018 online access available until September 20, 2019
