You may have pop-up blocking software on your computer or a pop-up blocker enabled in your browser. These programs will interfere with viewing our courses. This may be something you did manually, or it may be because you set your browser security settings to high.
 
A new browser window will always open as a pop-up when you launch any of our courses.  Before starting a course, you must disable pop-up blocking for our site. If you're not familiar with how to manage pop-ups and pop-up blocking, review the link for your specific browser.
