To obtain access to the TCO Training Course, a potential candidate must be nominated by their headquarters/major command. A training account will be established for the nominee once the DANTES Exams program receives the nomination package. The nominee will receive an automated "welcome" email, including login and password information.

While course completion is estimated to take four hours, the student has 30 days to finish the course and pass the final exam. DANTES is automatically notified when a student successfully completes training course requirements.
