Tips for a smooth training experience
for a smooth training experience


  • CHECK YOUR PRINTER: Use a computer with a functioning printer connected and available.
  • SET ASIDE ENOUGH TIME: Each module takes roughly 20-30 minutes to complete. Once the training module is started, DO NOT CLOSE the page or you will lose your progress and return to the beginning.
  • NO SKIPPING AHEAD: The modules require that you interact with each element on the screen before you can move forward. If you get stuck, it probably means that you forgot to click/watch or listen to something on that screen.
  • VIDEO LOADING: The embedded videos take 15-20 seconds to load, so please be patient.
  • FAQ: We have created an FAQ sheet (pdf) listing the most commonly asked questions. Have it on hand in case you run into any issues during training.

Technical Support: If you encounter issues not addressed in our FAQ sheet (pdf), please call 971-673-0300 and ask to be routed to any available Health Educator.
