This program can only be taken on a PC. It is not Mac compatible. Students need a high-speed internet connection, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0 or greater, or any version of Firefox or Chrome and e-mail capabilities. Students must also have basic computer knowledge and skills.
All lab exercises will use virtual machines to provide the student with a pre-configured environment; therefore, in addition to the previous requirements, students must have the free Microsoft Silverlight plugin installed or have administrator rights on their computer to install this plugin. The Microsoft Silverlight plugin is available here.
The interactive lab environments require weekly check-ins and activity.
In order to proceed to the advanced Power User portion, students need to master the End User portion of the program.
Manuals are included as downloadable PDFs throughout the program.
