9. Who is Etrainu?

Etrainu is the official online Course Provider of the NRL. All of the online course components are delivered through Etrainu’s Learning Management System (LMS).  To learn more about Etrainu please go to http://www.etrainu.com/about-etrainu.cfm

10.What internet and computer requirements do I need to complete the online modules of my course?

Etrainu’s online Learning Management System (LMS) operates best on an ADSL internet connection, particularly where interactive multi-media or flash interactive training is being displayed. Etrainu generally does not recommend online training to be conducted on wireless internet solution, such as USB wireless modem or 3G tethering. Although some courses will be able to be accessed using these, response times may be slower. Etrainu courses are written in Flash and therefore if you don’t have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed, you may have issues with courses loading and being able to view them. The latest version of Adobe Flash player can be downloaded for free from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ The etrainu website works best in certain internet browsers and certain versions. These are the browsers and versions we recommend for the etrainu website and courses to work the best:

  • Google Chrome – has Adobe Flash built in and updates automatically
  • Mozilla Firefox version 3.5 or above
  • Internet Explorer version 9.0 or above
