Tech Support Frequently Asked Questions

System Requirements

What are the system requirements?

We recommend using one of the browsers below.

Internet Explorer Firefox Safari  Chrome

HSEpathway is tablet-friendly. For best results, we recommend using a device no smaller than an Apple iPad mini— with a 7.9‑inch (diagonal) or larger screen and 1024×768 pixel or higher screen resolution.

skillsCOMPASS and GEDpathway require Adobe Flash Player 6 or above, and a screen with a resolution of at least 800×600 pixels. An automatic check for your current Flash version and your screen resolution should appear in the right column.

Other browsers and operating systems may work effectively. We regularly monitor and test new browsers to ensure our services are compatible with them.
