Scholar Courses

Audio/Video playback is skipping or laggy

This is generally due to a poor internet connection. For the best experience, avoid downloading other files or checking e-mail while taking a course, as other internet-related apps can interrupt the stream of data or cause an erratic experience.

If the issue persists, contact your local system administrator or desktop support for further assistance.


No audio

Not all courses are accompanied by audio narration, music, and sound effects. Ask your training manager if the course does indeed contain audio. If it does, follow these steps to troubleshoot:

  • Ensure your speakers or headphones are plugged securely into the correct jack on your device and are powered on (if applicable)

  • Ensure the volume level is turned up on your device

  • Launch a familiar website or application with audio to test audio output and the volume level

If the issue persists, contact your local system administrator or desktop support for further assistance.

Re-viewing/Resuming your course

Resume an interrupted course or re-view a completed course by following the same process used to initially login to the learning management system (LMS).


Can't find the course window (After reading Policy/Course Materials)

As you click on the Policy/Code button in the course, the course gets pushed behind that window – don’t worry, it's still there.

You can close or minimize the policy and the course should appear for you. Please do not launch the course again, as it's still active. Navigate back to the (minimized) course window and you'll be able to move on.


Error messages in the course

The course has most likely timed out for security reasons. Please check your network configuration and try again.

Error messages such as "a system error has occurred" or "error with course communication" usually mean that your computer has temporarily lost communication with the True Office Learning servers. This can occur when:

  • Multiple applications and browser windows are open (because other applications may interrupt the flow of data streaming from True Office Learning)

  • The internet connection is interrupted

  • Connection is attempted during a system upgrade

To resolve the issue:

  1. Close all browser windows and system applications

  2. Attempt to connect to the system again

If you continue to experience connectivity issues, try to access the system via a hardwired (versus a wireless) connection.  If the error message persists, clear your browser cache or reboot your system.


Flash Player errors

With Flash being discontinued all our courses utilize HTML to play the course. If your course is requiring Flash, please contact True Office to get an updated course package.


Network Connection error

Unfortunately, an error like this relates to your internet connection, not the course itself. However, there are a few things you can try to resolve this issue. Usually by opening the training in a completely different browser, you'll correct the problem.

Additional actions to try:

  • Close any browser windows not related to the course

  • Close your email client

  • Close any applications that may be using a lot of bandwidth

  • If you are using a VPN or Citrix and have the option to complete the course using a direct connection to the internet, do so

  • Clear your browser’s cache (see below) and load the course again


Course won't load/advance

Please try opening the training in a completely different browser. If that doesn't work, or isn't an option, please clear your browser's cache.

To reset your browser’s cache (browser specific):
