How to Begin
If you don't already have them on your computer, you will need to
download and install the current versions of
Adobe Reader, v.7, and
Flash Player, v.8 software.
Once you complete step 1 above, you may login and register for the
course. That can be accomplished by clicking on the green Registration
button in the title frame at the top of this Web page. A new page
will open up asking for your first and last names, your valid email
address, and your state of residence.
Upon submission of that form you will have an ID in the course,
allowing you to begin with the Lesson 1 material. Click on the
green Lessons button above in order to get started.
Once you finish with the material in the first lesson, you
should be prepared to the take the first of the six Assessments.
NOTE: You MUST install v.8,
or later, of the Flash Player for the Assessments to function
When you are ready to do so, click the green Assessments button at the
top. This will bring up links (within this frame) to the six assessments
in the course. Select the button number that corresponds with
the lesson you just completed.
Note: Progress through the course material is sequential, and requires
registration. In order to proceed to subsequent lessons, you will
need to score 80% or better on each of the assessments. You may
view the Syllabus (grouped with the Lessons) at any time without registering.
5—Leaving & Returning to the Course:
If you leave and return to the course at a later time, you will
be required to login again. Just click the green Registration
button and enter your email address *only* in order to get back to the
course. The Web site will "remember" you and how far you've progressed
in the course.
