Common Questions and Answers

 

Which browsers and devices can I use?

Internet courses work with the most recent versions of all browsers.  Be sure to close all other programs when running an internet course to reduce buffering problems.  Courses are compatible with PC and IOS and mobile devices.  However, we do not recommend taking a course from your mobile phone.

I purchased courses for more than one applicator and used the same credit card and email for each purchase.  Not all the applicators can login and find their courses.  Only one applicator has access to their courses.

Each licensed applicator that wishes to receive credit for completed courses must use a unique email address.  There cannot be more than one applicator using the same email address.  The same credit card can be used to purchase courses for multiple applicators, but a new account with a unique email address must be created for each purchase.   If you have purchased courses for multiple applicators using the same email address please contact Becky Maguire (253-445-4595 or hinesre@wsu.edu) or Kristi Boone (509-335-2952 or kristi.boone@wsu.edu) and we can help the applicators gain access to the courses.

 

My course is running but I can’t hear it. There is no audio!

Here are some steps to try and make sure you can hear the audio.
1. Restart the computer to ensure there are not pending updates or processes impacting normal functionality.
2. Try a different web browser to see if the issue is isolated to a specific browser.
3. Try muting and unmuting the module to see if the issue is with the module.
4. Make sure the sound isn’t muted on the Mac or PC system.
5. If applicable, verify external speakers or headphones are working properly.

If you are using an Apple product and Safari as your web browser, follow these steps to make sure the audio is working.
1. Go to your TalentLMS portal (https://recertification-cahnrs.talentlms.com/index or https://prelicense-cahnrs.talentlms.com).
2. Double-click the address bar.
