APPLE iPad USERS:

Please note our Flash based courses will not run on IPads; Apple does not suport Flash.

Quick Tip: If you cannot complete one of your courses in one go, simply close and exit the course in order to save your bookmark. Do not leave a course open with no activity as the connection to our secure servers will be closed and you run the risk of not bookmarking your progress or score.

Q: When I try to run a course all I get is a blank white window!

IMPORTANT:

A: Please note that access to your new ‘training home page’ is via SECURE server, this means that all data is fully encrypted and your web address should look something like this https://www.atfwebportal.co.uk/User/Clientlogin.aspx/XXXXXX

 ‘XXXXXX’ representing your ‘unique company number’ NOT Disclosed in this user guide

If the ‘s’ is missing you will not be able to ‘launch’ any of the courses, instead you will see a white blank window appear where the course content should be!

Example below showing your web link minus the 's' (however, whilst the course window is showing the 's')



To correct this logout, make sure your main web link contains the ‘s’ in the address bar, if it hasn't’t type it in after the http:// to look like https://  

If the course fails to load check that you have FLASH player installed along with the correct system spec as listed below:

Q: I cannot advance past the first page! example below

No navigation buttons!

A: This is more likely to be that your screen resolution is set to 'LESS' when it should be set to 'MORE'.
TO increase your screen resolution do the following (or if you dont wish to change your screen settings press F11 first to see if this shrinks your sceen size):

For all Windows, 2000/XP etc click on your control panel icon (start menu) then click on (1) 'Display'' (2) Click on your settings tab, (3) increase your size to 'more'; then click on apply

display screen - increasing your size to 'more'

For VISTA users; you can right click your desktop, as per example image below, then click on (1) display settings (2) increase resolution to 'high' (3) then click 'apply'

Vista increasing screen resolution

When you go to re launch the course again you should see that the course window is now smaller and floats inside your home page, as per example below; also the navigation buttons are now visible.

Screen resolutions set to more, thus showing the course windo in its correct size

Q: How does book marking work, and what if i want to re-do my test paper only?

A: Book marking is automatic, each time you exit a course, the system will remember your last page. Next time you login and launch that course, it will offer you a choice; start at the beginning or at your bookmark,

If at any point you wish to retake your 'test paper' you can do so; if you have a 'pass' result then the course will start from the begining again, however, if you have a failed result, you can retake the test paper only......

course complete example

If you wish to revisit a completed courses i.e. to re-sit a test paper or do refresher training you can.

Simply click on the launch button as normal, a popup box will be displayed if you have failed your test!

The message will say ‘If you want to start at the beginning click OK, or Cancel’ as in the example below.  

By clicking CANCEL you can access to the course menu and select the course 'assessment' section which will permit you to re-take the test paper without having  to re-do the course from the beginning.  If however, you click OK you will make the course compulsory, thus starting from the begining again.

Taking a test paper again!
