The courses are Flash based and therefore not compatible with iPads. We recommend you access the course using a modern browser from a PC or laptop for the best experience.

As you work through the courses you will need to watch the videos in full. The button to proceed to the next screen will not appear until the entire running time of the video has elapsed - skipping through the video does not speed this up.

Each part of a course must be completed.

Once you have completed all parts of a course, you will receive a prompt to complete an small online survey. This survey MUST be completed for us to track your completion of the course. Having completed and submitted the survey, we will upload your successful completion of the course to your FAN records within 10 working days. It will then appear on the My Training page on this website.
