Recommended Browser Settings:
In order for Lab simulations to function correctly it is necessary to add (*.videotrainer.com) as an exception for pop-up blockers. All modern browser offer this option instead of having to disable pop-up blockers. It can usually be found under your browsers options or security settings.

The following items may interfere with training and it is recommend to disable them during your training session or use an alternitive browser just for training.
  • Third-party browser toolbars installed (i.e. Google toolbar, Ask toolbar, Bing Bar)
  • Ad blocking extensions/plugins/add-ons for your browser (example: Ad Block Plus)
  • Script blocking extensions/plugins/add-ons (example: noScript)

If you have any of the above mentioned items running, disable or close them accordingly and then try launching the training again.

Training on Mobile Devices:
As our training products evolve we plan to include support for as many mobile devices as possible. Currently we only support Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod. No extra App is required, simply log on to your training like you normally would. Note Adobe Flash is not required for Apple devices.

Training on Multiple Devices:
When Training on multiple devices, in order for progress and scores to be tracked properly, you must logout of one device before you continue training on a second device. If a proper logout is not performed loss of progress or incorrect progress/scores may be recorded. These cannot be manually changed and you will have to revisit each video briefly and retake the quiz.
