Accessing Purchased Courses

Multi-Course Dashboard contains your courses that have prerequisite requirements. This includes Certificates such as Master Preceptor I & II, Series with prereqs such as Sports Science, and Microcredentials that are coming soon.

Technology Troubleshooting

Screen Not Displaying Properly:

If you are unable to see the entire screen or pop up box, your screen resolution/size may be set too high to display the entire area properly. Try zooming out by holding ctrl and pressing the - key until the desired size is found. You can also access the zoom in/out feature by using the three dot top menu icon on most browsers.

Video Troubleshooting:

Assessment not unlocking after watching the video?
Participants are required to watch the video in its entirety before the system will unlock the next course component. Minutes are tracked and saved while the user is actively viewing. Please ensure that you refrain from skipping ahead or fast-forwarding through unviewed segments and avoid navigating away from the video window during playback as the viewing time will not be tracked.

Should you need to pause, simply keep the window open to maintain your current position in the video. However, if you need to close the window or log out of EducATe, make a note of your progress in the video to resume from the same point upon returning. Your minutes viewed will be tracked, but your position in the video will not be saved after exiting. When returning, you may skip through already viewed segments and resume the video where you left off to complete the remaining time requirement.

If you are experiencing issues with your video such as not being able to access, buffering, error message, or your assessment does not unlock after viewing the video in its entirety, it is likely that your computer/network is blocking the tracking of the video. This often happens at schools and businesses that have networks with a firewall or malware software installed on their computers. If you are using a school/business computer or internet connection, try watching the videos at home using your personal computer on your home Wi-Fi network or on a cellular device such as a phone or tablet. If you are unable to use a personal device on your own network, you may need to ask your IT Team to check if your school/business computer’s browser settings are correct or if there are any access restrictions in place for Vimeo video viewing & tracking from your computer or internet network.

If you are accessing from your personal computer on your home internet and are still having trouble with video tracking, try these steps:

  1. Clear your Browser Cache, Cookies, and History. Need help? Use this link to help clear your Browser Cookies, Cache and History. You may have to login again after clearing.
  2. Check that JavaScript is enabled. This link provides instructions on how to enable JavaScript on your browser.

If you are experiencing other technical issues or have a question regarding a course, please contact us using the Tech Help form on the Help/Contact Us page. 

How Do I Access My Statement of Credit?

You are required to complete the following before a Statement of Credit is produced.

  1. View and complete all course components (videos, handouts, interactive components, etc.).
  2. Achieve a passing score of 70% or better on the assessment.
  3. Complete (including open ended questions) the course evaluation.
  4. Your Statement of Credit will be available to print instantly upon completion of the course evaluation, and then can also be found by accessing "My Transcript" from the left-side menu.

Expiration Date Policy

You will generally have 12 months from the date of purchase to complete your course (unless otherwise noted in the course). If not completed by the Purchase Expiration Date, the course will be removed from your account. Before any course is expired, you will receive multiple email reminders that your expiration date is approaching. A refund will not be issued when the course is removed, but you will have the opportunity to purchase it again if you desire. Course expiration dates are intended to:

  1. Allow you the time needed to complete purchased courses
  2. Encourage utilizing courses in a timely manner that enhances patient care and continuous learning
  3. Ensure purchased courses do not sit forgotten and unused

Exceptions: Certain specialty courses such as certificates or microcredentials may have extended expiration dates of 18 or 24 months that will be noted in the course summary. The only exception to the Purchase Expiration Date being less than 12 months from the date of purchase would be the following: 

  1. Courses within special events such as Virtual Conferences, Encore Events, etc. will only be available during the advertised window. These courses will expire at the end of the event window and must be completed before the last day of the event at 11:59pm CT.
  2. The BOC Expiration Date comes before the 12 month Purchase Expiration Date. The BOC Expiration Date is essentially the date that a course is no longer valid in line with the current practice analysis. In this case, a refund will not be offered. 
  3. NATA also reserves the right to retire a course if it in some way becomes invalid. If that happens, we will work with you to correct the situation. This will be corrected by offering a refund in the form of original payment or an exchange for an equivalent valued course. 

I failed an assessment. Can I retake it?

Yes. You may take an assessment a total of three (3) times. After the third failed retake, the course is marked as failed and will remain in your dashboard until it expires (365 days from the purchase date). Once it expires, you will have the opportunity to purchase and retake the course, if desired. If you need to repurchase the course before the expiration date, complete the contact form below to request that your course be expired immediately.
