PLEASE READ -- Course Videos Not Playing?

TO: All CFedS, CFedS Candidates & Trainees
FROM: CFedS Technical Support

Adobe pushed a new FlashPlayer update and unfortunately our courses are going to be impacted. They disabled the ability by default to playback swf files from the local file system.

What does that mean in laymen terms?

When you click on a video in one of our courses, the shell appears but the video doesn’t start – you just see a black screen.

Why is this important and what does it mean for the program?

All of our course Video is FLV, but the player is SWF. So if you try to run a course, you will encounter this issue.

The Solution

Make sure you are using an approved and supported browser (Internet Explorer and Firefox)

  1. Attach your CFedS Hard Drive to the system.
  2. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Flash Player -> Advanced.
  3. Under the Developer Tools section, click on Trusted Location Settings.
  4. Select Add, then Add Folder.
  5. Select the CFedS hard drive from the list that appears, and click Ok.
  6. Click Confirm.
  7. Click Close.
  8. The CFedS videos should now play correctly.
Note: If the CFedS Hard Drive changes drive letters, you may need to repeat this process for the new drive letter.

Contact Tech Support at cfeds@trainingsolutionsplus.com if you are having problems with the above.

New Qualification for CFedS Program

The Certified Federal Surveyor (CFedS) program has recently modified the qualification for enrollment in the program. Pre-registered/pre-licensed applicants who have passed the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Surveying examination are now eligible to enroll in the program. Pre-registered/pre-licensed applicants who pass the CFedS examination will not become certified until they become registered/licensed in at least one State, territory, or the District of Columbia. In the interim between passing the CFedS examination and becoming registered they will have the same continuing education and renewal requirements as CFedS.

Providing CFedS Program training to pre-registered/pre-licensed surveyors benefits the BLM, trust beneficiaries, other Federal land management agencies, and the public by providing future local surveyors with specialized training developed by Cadastral Survey. This is unique training, to Federal standards, that is not available elsewhere. The CFedS Program training is proven to enhance the quality of surveying services offered in Indian Country as well as on the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) in general.

Thanks to the CFedS Panel for their work on this issue.
