When you purchase this program, you will receive Fundamentals of Petroleum, 5th ed. (a print book or an e-book) and an online assessment that can be taken as an open-book test at your own pace. The assessment is made up of 500 questions and takes approximately 40 hours to complete after reading the book. If you do not obtain a passing score of 70%, you may retake the assessment with a new set of questions at no additional cost. Successful completion earns a Completion Certificate from The University of Texas at Austin–PETEX and 4.0 CEUs.
This program is divided up into five units to reflect the five parts that comprise the book. Each unit addresses specific topics and can be purchased separately.
