What software do I need to run the course?
An internet connection, a browser, and Adobe Flash Player Version 11.0 or above. If you do not have Adobe Flash Player installed, download the latest version free from the Adobe website
The training seems to have frozen, what can I do to get it running again?
This is most likely due to a temporary loss of internet connection. To solve this problem you can clear your web browser cache. This will clear the way for the course to continue as normal.
Visit this page for instructions on how to do this in your browser.
It should be noted that in recent versions of Internet Explorer this can be done by clicking CTRL-SHFT-DEL.
Do I need speakers?
Yes. You will need external speakers or headphones. We recommend you test your sound before starting, and check your system volume. You can do this in the windows taskbar by clicking the speaker icon. On a Mac the volume control icon is on the top bar.
Will the course run on my Mac?
Yes. The course will run on Mac 10.4 (Tiger) or 10.5 (Leopard) with Safari browser, or Firefox 2.0 and above. You will also need Adobe Flash installed.
Will the course work on my PC?
Yes. The course will work on any Windows 2000, 2003, XP or Vista PC with either Internet Explorer 6 and above or Firefox 2.0 and above.
What if I have a slow internet connection?
If you have a dial-up connection (for example, with a modem speed of 56kbps) the course will not run. The minimum is 256kbps (0.2mbps) which is the lowest speed for most broadband connections. If you have a broadband speed of 1mbps or less the course will run fine, but video will take longer to load and/or may be jumpy. For optimal viewing, we recommend a connection speed of at least 1-2mbps. If you are unsure, you can check your internet connection speed now
Is there a time limit?
Cloudtrainer e-learning licences are based on a yearly subscription. If your company renews the licence every year, you have continual access to the site, and will be able to open the course at any time for a refresher. If your company chooses not to renew the licence for your account, and you are not enrolled on the course immediately (for example, the subscription started on the 1st July but you joined and enrolled on the 1st October), you may have less than 12 months left to complete the training. Check with your administrator to find out if there is a time limit imposed.
Is the course DDA accessible?
The course is not yet Triple A Conformant (Priority 3 of the WAGC accessibility standards). The course contains a high proportion of animation, video and graphical interactive elements which will be redeveloped later to conform to accessibility guidelines.
What if I don't have an internet connection?
Our course is currently only available via the web.
How long does a licence last?
A licence lasts for one year from date of completion.
What if I buy a licence but don't use it?
Your licences are valid for an entire year. Users will be registered in the system but are not deemed active until they enrol on a course. Once enrolled, the licence is locked to that particular learner and cannot be changed. However, if an individual has not enrolled on any course and later leaves the company, we can transfer that licence to a new user.
What if my users have problems running the course?
The eLearning website itself is supported 24/7 and we guarantee 99.9% uptime. Technical support is provided by email Monday to Friday 9-5pm, and we guarantee to respond within two hours. Depending on the nature of the problem, we aim to have a resolution within one to three days.
How do you prevent system abuse?
There is a perception that eLearning is open to abuse, because employees could share login details and complete the course on behalf of someone else (essentially cheat). There are a number of ways we get round this. The LMS itself will prevent simultaneous login - so only one person (or more accurately PC) can login with a particular username/password at any one time. Upon login the LMS recognises the specific learner and updates their personal training record: The LMS will track modules completed, the last time the learner accessed the course, the total number of accesses, and total recorded time spent. Cloudtrainer monitor this usage and in cases of abuse, immediately suspend any licences preventing access to the site. In addition only one certificate per licence will be distributed, each certificate has a unique identifier which is linked to the user.
More information on specific courses can be found on the course page.
