The state of Ohio requires all course providers of the course to verify your identity before you can start the course. Since you’re a minor, we do that by verifying the identity of your parent or guardian. We try to do this automatically so you can start the course immediately. In most cases, if they have a social security number and have lived in the United States for at least 3 years, you’ll be able to start immediately. If we can’t automatically verify their identity, then they must complete and notarize the 2Cool Parent Affidavit. Once we have that, you’ll be able to start.
