How do I turn off Pop-up Blockers?
For Internet Explorer: Click on Tools at the top of your screen; a menu will appear. Place your arrow over Pop-up Blocker. The first item should read Turn off Pop-up Blocker; click on that. If that does not work, you may have to call the IT help desk & ask how to turn off your pop-up blockers.
I have forgotten my MindLeaders User ID.
Your User ID begins with CPTP and is followed by the last four digits of your social security number and the initials of your first and last names: CPTP####??. For example, John Doe’s User ID would be CPTP1234JD.
Please do not register for MindLeaders more than once. Each time you register, you create a new User ID. These ID’s cannot be combined at a later date to provide you with one consolidated record of your training.

How do CPTP and LaTech know I have completed a MindLeaders Course?
Every month CPTP receives a report from MindLeaders with all of the courses each student has mastered. Your CPTP coordinator has access to this information or can request a transcript from CPTP at any time. Additionally, you have the ability to print your own transcript. To find out how, simply review the answer to “Which courses have I taken?”
I have mastered some sections of the course and only want to take the sections of the course I have not mastered. What do I do?
Log-in. Enter the course you want to master. Click on Course Tools (the second yellow tab on the left hand side of your screen). Click on View My Scores, underneath Assessment. A list of course sections will appear on your screen. You will see a checkmark (ü) next to each section you have mastered. To access a section you have not yet mastered, click on the title of that section. Upon completion of the section, return to View My Scores and repeat the process until you have mastered all sections of the course.
