Logging onto the Training Website
Once at the training website you will be asked to enter your logon ID and
password. If you are a using the training system from a hospital, your ID will
be given to you by your training administrator and your password will be either
emailed to you or also given to you by your administrator. If you access the
training system from home, your ID will be the one entered during registration
and your password will be emailed to you. On successful login, you will be
presented with the main website menu.

Web Browser Settings
Firstly, it will help if you add the training system website address to the
"trusted sites" list of your web browser. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, this
is done by opening the browser, selecting Tools followed
by Options from the drop down menu located at the
top of the browser. On the options window that appears (figure 1), select the
Security tab, click on the "Trusted Sites" icon image and finally
click on the Sites button to reveal the list of
trusted sites (figure 2).

Web Player Download
The very first time one of the training system modules is accessed from the
training website, a "web player" will be downloaded. This is a small piece of
software supplied by a software company called Macromedia that allows the
training system to run in a web browser. When you first access one of the
Teaching Package chapters, the application will detect that the player is not
present and will display a message on the welcome screen (figure 3).

Clicking on the message will initiate the download and your web browser will
display a security warning window (figure 4). Click Install to initiate the
Figure 4 - Security Warning Window.
Once installed, the welcome screen will alter to show the web player as
initialising and the application will then start up (figure 6).
Note: If you have a telephone modem, the web player can take several minutes to
download. However, once installed, this software will remain on the computer
and will not have to be downloaded again.

Web Player Security
Each time the training system welcome screen loads, a security window is
displayed (figure 6). This window is repeated once more when a chapter loads.
To reduce these security messages, click on Security Settings
and enter the following address in the text field at the base of the settings
window (figure 7):
Once entered, click on the Add Location button
followed by Save Settings and finally, click
OK to the security message.
If you are running the training system from within a hospital it is likely that
there will be a firewall in place to protect the hospital network from
unauthorised access from the Internet. Likewise, if running the training system
at home, you may find that your service provider and/or home computer has a
firewall running. If this is the case, the firewall must be made aware of
certain types of file used by the training system. These file types have the
following name extensions:
