Bonita, I haven't registered for the latest MP Serger Certification online, but I have taken all the other certifications. If you want to receive
the certification you must complete all the required projects within the designated time. If you are just taking the course for personal development
and are not concerned with the certification there is no requirement to complete or submit anything really.
You could simply sign up for the course download your class materials, instructions and watch all the videos without completely a single one.
It's not like they are going to hassle you about it. You would not be receiving feedback from the instructors if you did not submit projects for
evaluation, but if that is not important to you then that would not be a worry either. Basically, if you pay the course fee, you will have access
to everything- patterns, videos, instructions, but no one is going to get ugly with you about submitting your projects. It is 100% up to you as
to whether you complete the projects or not.
I would suggest that if you purchase the course, you will get far more out of it if you do complete the required projects and some of the bonus
projects. The videos present the techniques to you, but the actual learning comes in to play when you do the technique yourself. Whether you submit
the project for a 'grade'/evaluation or not is up to you.
