Study Material Revisions

LOMA typically releases new and revised course materials on a quarterly schedule. New or revised course materials become available as close to the first business day of each calendar-year quarter (January, April, July, or October) as possible.

About Revisions

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they study from the correct materials. To help students and Ed Reps make sure that they do have the right version of the materials in the event of a revision, we've put together these FAQs.

How do I find out if a course is being revised?

We include release dates for new and revised course materials in LOMA’s Education & Training Catalog, on our website, in course descriptions on LOMA’s learning system, and in the Ed Rep Contact newsletter.

The course I'm about to enroll has been revised. How does this affect me?

Enrollments purchased after the release date will be based on the newly-revised materials. The material in your online course or available through your course portal will be up-to-date, and LOMA’s learning system will deliver the correct version of the course’s exam as determined by the date of your enrollment. You do need to make sure that you aren't studying from any older, printed study materials.

What if my course is revised after my enrollment?

For courses with revised course materials, enrollments purchased prior to the release date will be based on the previously-assigned course materials, so if you're already enrolled, you should continue studying those materials. You'll have six months of access to the correct study materials via the “Upcoming Learning” section of LOMA’s learning system, the system will deliver the correct version of the course’s exam as determined by the date of your enrollment. You do need to make sure that you aren't studying from any older, printed study materials.

Does this mean two students can be studying different versions of the same course at the same time?

Yes. Because students have a rolling six-month course access period, multiple students enrolled in the same course may be studying from different course materials, depending upon their enrollment date.

So, online materials will match my enrollment—how do I make sure I have the correct printed materials?

The materials available through "Upcoming Learning" in the learning system will be correct for your enrollment. You can check the publication date and title of any printed text to make sure it matches them. If you're checking materials for an upcoming enrollment, consult the Education & Training Catalog to see whether or not your course is being revised.

LOMA will not reimburse fees for students who study from incorrect assignments, so please double-check this and contact us if you're not sure.

What if I don't complete a revised course during my enrollment?

Course extensions are not available if a course’s materials have been updated since you enrolled in the course. You may re-enroll in the course, but the new enrollment will be based on the new course materials. We'll send you emails to remind you to complete your course before they expire, to avoid a change in assigned materials.

How do I find the latest corrections in LOMA materials?

Although we make every attempt to avoid errors in our publications, they sometimes do occur. LOMA publishes (or updates) text corrections on this site for each publication whenever we learn of errors that would affect students’ understanding of curriculum materials.
