Once the transition period ends on May 15, 2016, the course will be taught in one manner only: the online portion administered by the NRA Learning Management System, followed by the instructor-led training. The packets then are officially expired on May 15th. It is my understanding that the NRA will purchase any unused course packets back from instructors. But I am skeptical.
