Doesn’t quite work right

I was able to complete the training but there was no sound.

The certificate that was sent was some weird file type that I could not open (Adobe could not open it).

I tried to submit feedback via the app, but that function didn’t work.

I would like to obtain a copy of my certificate, but not sure how to do that. At least the training showed up in FLTMPS.

Read and sign would be better than this.

No sound. Without sound images just make it harder to read and I still have to wait for the video to progress before I can. I had to set up my stock mail app on my iPad ,which I don’t use, before I could send my cert. This app should not be required before its even ready to use. Downloading and deleting this app is inconvenient. I have no memory on my iPhone for it anyways so I had to use my iPad. I’m not fond of the the requirement to have a smart device and download government software onto it.

Can’t get it to send me my cert

Says I don’t have an email set up. But no place to input email and none of the numbers or emails associated with this app work.
