The modules won’t open for my course, what can i do?

Allow pop-ups

The course itself loads as a pop-up from your browser, so please also ensure you allow pop-ups. You may get a message saying a pop-up window has been blocked. You can enable the pop-ups by following the steps in the screenshot below, or you can click here for instructions for how to allow pop-ups in Google Chrome. If this doesn’t work then please contact us for support.

I used up all my attempts to pass an assessment, can I get another one?

For most assessments you have three attempts to pass the test. If after three attempts you haven’t passed the assessment, you no longer have access to it and you usually won’t be able to complete the course. To discuss if it’s possible to get another attempt please contact us.

What internet browser should i use to access my course or webinar?
