Can I view the courses on a portable device?
Our courses are flash based presentations which normally cannot be viewed on portable devices. However, our courses have been known to work if you download a free app from your app store that will read Flash based presentations. For Apple products you will need to download a free app called the Puffin browse; and for Android type products the free app is called the Dolphin browser. You may need to use earphones for audio. This is not a guarantee that the courses can be viewed on all portable devices.
