You can take a break at any time and simply log back in to continue. If you are using a screen reader it takes, on average, an additional 30-45 minutes to complete.

Online Instructions

  1. You can take the WOWI on any desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone with Internet access. (You may want to have your charging cable available if you are using your tablet or smart phone.)
