All of our courses have some audio, so you might want to check you have speakers / headphones set up.

Please note: where audio is provided there will also be a text version of the information so you won’t miss any content by not having audio.


All of our online learning courses have been developed to give the best learning experience on a desktop or laptop computer, but some of them can now be accessed on tablets, like the iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab. There are a wide range of tablets on the market and although the courses should work on all of them, to get the best mobile experience we recommend a few things:

  • A minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 600, with a recommended screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher.
  • Generally the standard web browser is the best one to use, so on an iPad, for example, use Safari. You may also need to change a setting in the browser to allow cookies from 3rd parties (you definitely will with Safari).
  • The courses are accessed most easily when connected to Wi-Fi rather than mobile data networks. If you do access via a mobile data network please note that you may be charged by your service provider, depending on your contract.
