Participant Handouts

The handouts are all in PDF format, some of them have the “Typewriter Tool” enabled. To use this feature, it is suggested that after opening the file to complete a “save as” command and re-name the file. This will preserve the original handout for future use. If you have difficulty opening the files, the first troubleshooting task is to upgrade to a newer version of Adobe Reader, which is free. http://get.adobe.com/reader/

 

If there is a problem downloading or opening a file please contact me. Ron Hopkins
