No, that is not necessary. It is possible to stop in between and to continue again later. A record of your progress will be saved and stored. However, the webinars do start again each time from the beginning, but you can fast forward via the player to where you left off. When the course restarts, you will get the message “Would you like to resume where you left off?” Note: if you click No to this, you will have to follow the course again from the beginning.
No, after completion you do not receive a certificate or proof of participation.
Check whether the question has really been completed correctly. Have all the videos been started? Are there still parts which are only accessible after scrolling, or as a sub-question, which have not yet been answered? Are there still sub-questions with no tick next to them? Each sub-question must often be rounded off by a confirmation via the OK button.
