Code of Conduct Orientation Training

All students must complete the Code of Conduct Orientation Training and print the certificate. If you have any difficulties with the training module, we have posted some helpful hints below.

  1. Do not use middle initials or any unusual characters that may be in your name. The system will not recognize it and you will not be given check marks.
  2. I am not getting check marks on each section:
    • You must complete each section in its entirety to receive a check mark. If you are not getting a check mark for a section, you have not completed something in that section that the program is requiring. Carefully proceed through each section, clicking on all links, policies and “videos.”
  3. I cannot print the certificate:
    • Before beginning the program, make sure the computer you are using is connected to a printer
    • If you cannot access the certificate, some portion of the program was not completed. Go back through each section, making sure each link, policy and “video” is clicked and completed.
  4. I wasn’t able to complete the training in one session, but when I went back to complete it, I had to start all over:
    • You must use the same computer each time
    • If you clicked on the red X to leave the session instead of clicking the EXIT button, your session was lost
  5. I am having trouble loading the program:
    • Try using a different internet provider
    • Try using a faster computer
  6. I can see the certificate, but I am having trouble printing it:
    • A screen shot of the certificate will suffice as proof that the program was completed. To take a screen shot, hold down the CTRL button and press the Print Screen button. Then paste in a word document.
    • A photo taken of the screen with the certificate displayed will work as well (student’s name must be on the certificate)
  7. If you continue to experience issues, please notify your instructor or program coordinator; they will arrange with the hospital hosting your clinical rotation for use of a computer at that hospital to complete the training.
