Training Notes & Viewing Tips:

  • This online training is optimized for viewing on screens with 1024x768 resolution or higher.
  • The training requires the free Adobe Flash Player.
  • Users can navigate between sections of the training by clicking on the on the chapter links in the left-hand section of the interface.
  • Within each section, users have a scrubber bar at the bottom of the interface that may be used to fast forward/rewind that section. If the scrubber bar obstructs any of the chapter links, it may be minimized by clicking on the "-" symbol on its left edge.
  • On some computers with wide format screens, the training module may initially open with a portion off the bottom of the screen. This can be resolved by re-sizing the browser window so that it does not fill the entire horizontal space of the screen (the sections of the training module will proportionately re-size).
