If you have a MAC you can still sign on to take any of our classes. Many of our customers have taken their courses on a MAC and had no problems whatsoever. However, be aware that our technical support team may be unable to assist you should you encounter technical difficulties. They do not have MACs and therefore may be unable to replicate any problem you may encounter. If you have a MAC, you will need the latest version of internet explorer as well as the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player.

While sound is another feature of our courses, it is not necessary for a customer to have sound in order to learn the course material or complete the course. All information played in audio is also displayed in text by the course player.

How do I get a username or password? What do I use it for? What should I do if I forget it?

The username and password is something selected by the student. It should also be something that they can easily remember. We suggest the student use their email address. Students will use the same username and password each time they attempt to log in to the virtual university page to access their course. This information is entered in the returning students section on the home page of the virtual university. If a student forgets his/her password, he/she can call 877-360-6008 to request this information.
