This problem arises from:

1.  Slow internet connection - If the connection is too slow, the content will either take more time to download or will not download at all.  If, after waiting a significant amount of time, the course content still does not appear, you will need to use a different computer or a different internet source.

2.  Your Institution computer IT department may block downloading course content from the Access CE, Inc. website.  If so, you will need to either use a non-work computer or ask your company IT department to unblock the Access CE, Inc. website.

3.  Browser issue - Access CE, Inc. program works best on Chrome or Internet Explorer.  It may help to switch to one of these browsers.


All CNA courses are approved through CA Department of Public Health for CNAs/HHAs.
