If you would like to take part in the online training, please watch the training presentation below, where you will be shown how to use the electronic reader in examinations and procedures will be explained.

Once you have viewed the training presentation, read the Guide to Using an Electronic Reader in Exams and take the short test (3 questions) to confirm your understanding of the training. You will also be asked to confirm your settings. Once you submit the form, it will be sent to your Advisor. You will receive an initial email confirmation that your test form has been submitted correctly. Within 10 days you will receive an email from your advisor with your test result. There is no need to do any further training once you pass the short test.
