It is recommended that students complete 1 academic course per quarter (not including the Supervision course) in order to spend an adequate amount of time on the course materials, readings and projects. 
If you are familiar with Applied Behavior Analysis and already work in the field it is possible to take 2 academic courses per quarter (not including the Supervision course), but it will not expedite the Supervision process or your eventual exam date and may result in learning loss before the exam.

The Rise of ABA: Applied Behavior Analysis on the PaCE Pod



"This series was ideal for someone living so far away from campus. I was able to go at my own pace - enrolling separately in each class at a time - which allowed me to continue my work while taking courses. I was also able to entirely self-manage the course workload and choose when to attend lectures, which meant that if my work in Senegal got particularly busy (or if we had day-long power outages or internet cutouts!) I was still able to complete all of my tasks on time. Also, the fact that I was eight hours ahead of everyone in California wasn't a problem at all. It was absolutely ideal for my situation."
