Whether you’ve got plenty of time to leisurely begin your Care Courses, or a tight deadline and want to get started fast, you want to know when your CourseBooks will arrive. Here’s some more information about how we process shipments that will help you know when to expect your books to show up in your mailbox.

Once you successfully place an order for CourseBooks, we begin the process of fulfilling it right away. Place your order before 3pm Eastern Time on a business day, and we will package and post your order on the same day.

How fast?

Now that your order is packaged, the time it takes for you to receive it depends on a few variables. The first of these variables is the shipping option you choose. We offer three options for domestic shipping:

  • Express Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 1-2 business days.
  • Priority Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 2-4 business days.
  • Free Standard Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 5-10 business days.

We offer three shipping options to Canada:

  • Express Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 3-5 business days.
  • Priority Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 6-10 business days.
  • Free Standard Shipping: CourseBooks typically arrive in 8-15 business days.

For all non-US/Canada Shipping locations, our CourseBooks generally take 4-15 business days to arrive by Airmail Parcel Post.

Where to?

Another effect on shipping transit time is your location. Our office is located in Northern Virginia, so the closer you are to us, the less time it takes the United States Postal Service to deliver your order. If you are in a true emergency rush to receive your CourseBooks, we recommend using either our Express or Priority shipping options, as the Post Office has a better track record with the speed of these services. Our Free Standard Shipping option is often quite quick, but we cannot guarantee anything faster than 10 business days.

Please let us know how we can help! Call us: 1-800-685-7610, Monday through Friday, 9-5 ET, or email us days, evenings and weekends: We’re here to help!
