What technology do I need to take the course?

You will need a computer, tablet, laptop, or phone with sound capability and a hi-speed Internet connection.

I forgot my password!

That’s okay. You can email and we will look it up for you.

One of the handouts isn’t downloading.

Oh no! Please email us at and we will send you a copy of the handout.

Class is not loading properly/Something’s not working:

Make sure your browser is updated. We suggest using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome for best results.

Can I stop and save class?

Yes! Click the Save button in the top right hand corner of the screen. You can log out and the class will resume at your stopping point when you log back in.

The class is slow to load/audio cutting in and out:

We’re so sorry that’s your experience today. These issues are related to our class vendor’s server or a slow internet connection. We suggest saving your spot in the class and resuming at a later time.

Will I earn continuing education credits for this course?

Yes! For each Simple STEM webinar you take, you will earn 1.5 hours of CE credit.

When will I receive my certificate?

You can print your certificate at the end of the course. If you have not received your certificate, please email

Why can’t I skip through sections?

In order to offer continuing education credit, it is required that our online classes do not allow students to skip ahead.

Why are there quiz questions?

Because we are testing your knowledge! It is a class after all! Don’t sweat the questions too much. If you get one wrong, you can re-take the quiz until you get the right answer.

Will more webinars be available in the future? 

We do have plans for more webinars in the future and are in the planning stages.
