Access to SAS Servers

Tracking
Your quiz scores and progress through the course are saved on SAS servers. This tracking data is for your own personal use and is not used for any other purpose, in accordance with the SAS Privacy Statement. Data saved on SAS servers enables tracking to persist across devices.
If you are unable to connect to the SAS servers, the course defaults to using your browser's local storage. The data in local storage only exists in the browser on the computer that you are using to take the training. Therefore, to maintain tracking, you must take the entire course using the same browser on the same computer.
Video Player

This course uses either the MediaElement player or the Brightcove player to deliver video. Both players automatically play videos in the format required for your browser.

For courses that use the Brightcove player, you must be able to access Brightcove servers to play videos. If videos are not playing, you might be behind a firewall that is blocking access to these servers.

What students can expect

You receive e-mail instructions and an activation code immediately after registering for a course.
Courses present material in an audio-visual format interspersed with step-by-step demonstrations and interactive features, such as questions, quizzes, and case studies. In addition, courses include closed captioning, printable video transcripts, and search.
Upon successful completion of most courses, you can print a personalized Certificate of Completion.
Practicing with SAS

Most courses include exercises or activities where you practice in SAS or in a software simulation. Depending on the course, you might use your own software, free SAS software such as SAS University Edition, or SAS software in a virtual lab. Each course has information about setting up for practices.
