Complete each stage in sequence.

The training materials are in a number of formats. Some are streaming video from youTube, and clicking on them will open a video player. Slide presentations with sound are Flash Video, and require Flash Player. The link to get that is on the right. Slide presentations are Java Applets. These require the Java plug-in (Mac OS has Java built-in). The link to get Java is on the right.  Other files are in PDF format. For that, you will need the free Acrobat Reader plug-in.

A note: If you get a warning that 'to protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts', you can trust the Java Applets we made--they contain no viruses or malicious code (or even invasive plants!)
