How to download
Each module contains its module, handouts, acknowledgements, PowerPoint handouts, and PowerPoint presentations both with and without a logo. Each document is saved as a plain text, PDF, and Microsoft Word file. PDF files will allow you to print the module and retain its original formatting. Due to the nature of Microsoft Word, formatting problems may arise. By including a PDF version, we hope to alleviate any effects of this problem. Microsoft Word files are helpful as they provide access for individuals who use text enlargers, and also because they enable personal modifications to adapt the training for your specific needs. Plain text can be used for individuals who use screen readers or those without access to Microsoft Word.
