The personal information you provide at time of registration is collected under BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The course will generally open in a new tab. It is rare that there are any issues opening the course. If a new tab containing the course does not open when the Launch button is clicked, please check any pop-up blockers, firewall settings, or antivirus software that is installed on your system or network. If you are on your workplace network, you can contact your IT department for assistance.
Any supported version of Windows or Mac OSX will allow you to take the course. In addition Linux should work as well, though it is not specifically supported. In terms of browsers, the two most recent versions of Chrome, Internet Explorer/Edge, Firefox and Safari are supported, with Chrome recommended.
By default the ‘Internet’ security zone in Internet Explorer uses Medium-High security settings. If you or your IT department have changed these to Custom or High settings, you may find that some of the type in the eLearning module is oddly spaced and hard to read. This is because these settings can block font downloads. You can alter your settings or add the site URL (https://learn.bcombudsperson.ca) to your Trusted Sites zone to solve this issue.
You can exit the course at any point by closing the Browser tab, and you will be returned to the page you last viewed when you re-enter it again from the Launch button on the Launch Course page. To ensure that your completion of the course is properly recorded in the system, when you finish the course, you can click the Exit button to close the course tab.
Freezes are rare, but if the course should freeze, you can quit and restart your browser. On restarting your browser you can login to the BC Ombudsperson site at https://learn.bcombudsperson.ca and re-launch the course.
To take the course you will need a computer running the Windows or Mac OSX operating system, a supported browser, and speakers or headphones for audio (Captions are available for all course audio if speakers or headphones are not available).
