How do the courses work?
If you are an existing NRoSO customer, do not purchase new two point courses if you have already reached the eight point limit as NRoSO will not accept more than eight points a year under this category. To check the status of your points, please check with NRoSO, or head to MY PROFILE to see if your existing points are still active or expired. They expire and are removed from your EiO account after exactly 12 months.
You can, however, still take the four point and eight point courses in addition to these courses.
