System Requirements and Compatibility

System Compatibility Checker
This tool checks your computer system and browser to see if it meets the minimum system configuration requirements to access the online training courses.


Minimum Technical System Requirements:

Platform Compatibility: The following operating systems are supported: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion), OSX 10.9 (Mavericks), OSX 10.10 (Yosemite), OSX 10.11 (El Capitan), Chromebooks.
Windows XP is not recommended because it is not longer supported by Microsoft. 
We recommend that you access this web site and view the courses on a PC (Windows, Mac or Chromebook).

Software: Most computers will already come with the software required to take this course. 

    • Adobe Flash Player - at least version 10. If your system does not have the Adobe Flash Player, the courseware will run in HTML5 mode except on Internet Explorer 11, with which you still need Adobe Flash Player. The only course that is currently not compatible with HTML5 is the Refuse to Be a Victim Course. You still need the Adobe Flash Player for this course. We are currently working on an update.
    • JavaScript must be enabled on your browser - this feature is enabled by default in most computer browsers.
    • Supported Browsers: Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer 11 (in that order). Make sure you are running the latest version of your browser. Microsoft Edge is currently not supported.
    • Audio playback capability.
    • Adobe PDF Reader.

If you want to verify that your computer meets the technical requirements, review the results of the automated “System Compatibility Checker” below.

You will need to take care of any item marked in red*.
If the issue can be resolved by installing additional software, links are provided to download the software. After installing the software, visit this page again.

* Sometimes the system compatibility checker will report that the Adobe Acrobat Reader is not installed when in fact it is.
