Has anyone managed to run the PPC course on a Mac?

As soon as I open the first module it comes up with an "Atlantic Link" page which says the following once I hit the compatibility check button:

Cheers in advance!

Hi, the PPR Course does run on a Mac but not on Safari. You need to use Firefox. Seemingly the package that the web people used for RYA Interactive does not presently support Safari for whatever reason.

Hopefully the above link works - it can be found on the right hand side once you have logged in to the PPR course

Hope that helps

Regards, Paul

Thanks for that. Will try Firefox tomorrow. Half way through now using my PC. It's quite good actually.

mac

hi,
I'm a big mac user, ask my friends

I worked through the course, and looked into all the little holes etc that was possible, prior to being able to offer the course, yep, as you state, I had the same, and resorted to firefox, its just about seamless, you'll see the blips if you look for it, but its not in the module/test itself, so it doesn't interfere.

E-M.
