  1. When will this class start an how long is the course? Do you get a certificate?

    • Hi Debra! The course material will be live on September 17, 2018. Once the course goes live, you will have access to all of the material to go through at your own pace. So you can take as much time or go through it as quickly as you like. There is about 3 hours worth of material to get through including video tutorials and written material. The material paired with the baking components is likely going to take you anywhere from 2-4 weeks to get through depending on how much time you spend with it. But you can take as long as you like and can always go back to it! You will receive a little certificate stating you finished the course at the end, but this is not an accredited course. The certificate is more for your own records and to celebrate the completion. Let me know if you have any other questions! You can also always email me at

  2. Hi Bettie, 
    I enrolled when you first advertised that you were going to have the yeast course. 

    I tried this morning to login to the dashboard 
    But had forgotten my password. I sent a request for the reset password but never received it.

    I can’t wait for the yeast course to start. I am so excited about taking this course.

  3. I signed up for the yeast bread course in
    late August or early
    September. Can I no longer get the different lessons because I waited too long,
    or am I doing something wrong?

  4. Thank you! I’m on the right track now.
