Technical Requirements

CVE online courses have very simple technical requirements - most PCs and Macs will be sufficient.

Software requirements

You will need the following programs to access the course material and the CVE website:

  • Browsers

​The online component can be completed using a free Internet browser (recent version). We recommend Chrome, available as a free download. You can use Firefox or Internet Explorer if you prefer.​

  • Logging in

It is most important that cookies are enabled in your browser. To learn how to enable cookies in Chrome, click here.

  • Adobe Acrobat Reader

This program will enable you to read the course notes, CVe-library items and other pdf files on this site. Download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader here

  • A Media Player (VLC, Quicktime, WMV)

  • Microsoft Word or Open Office

You need either of these programs to complete your assignments. Microsoft Word is not a free program. If you do not have Microsoft Word or a compatible program, you can download Open Office which is a free program similar to Microsoft Office.
