Technical Requirements for Online Courses


    • PC or Mac*
      * Internet Explorer 7 or higher, Javascript, and the ability to play WMV files are required for some components of the Visual Signaling (Flashing Llight) and the Radar Observer Renewal courses (created by Prometric for CMES) to run correctly.  All other course exercises and simulations will run properly on Mac and on PC in browsers other than Internet Explorer, and these components will provide sufficient review and practice to adequately prepare for the proficiency exam at the Prometric Testing Center.  However, Mac users and PC users who do not use Internet Explorer as the default browser, please be aware of these requirements if you wish to run the Prometric-created components that exactly mimic the format of the test that will be given at the Prometric Testing Center.
    • Broadband Internet connection
    • Adobe Flash Player
    • 1024 x 768 screen resolution (minimum recommended)
    • Speakers or headphones

OPTIONAL: A microphone and/or webcam are not required, but would allow you to have an enhanced experience in courses that include live student teacher interaction sessions.
