A Notice Regarding New website system and course system vs. the Old System

We have just launched a new website and course system. For those of you who have not completed your courses purchased in the old system, their is a menu link in the new system to access your courses in the old system. The link is titled “My Courses Old System” .  This link will be available for a short period during the transition.  You may have to login to the old site when you click on the link.  You should be able to access the course there and the certificates, but any new purchases and new courses must be done on the new system.  If your course expired on the old system and you haven’t started it yet, send an email to staff@thewisedc.com to request a course reset.  You will be enrolled in the course in the new system.  Old certificates and purchase history should be available on the new system account also.

You may have to clear your browser history, for the www.thewisedc.com domain name to be redirected to the new site when you type it in your browser. If you need to access the new system directly the address is https://www.thewisedc.com/cms .  This will force the browser to the new site.

Thank you for your patience as we try improve your online experience.
