  • If you are having trouble accessing the SafeColleges/Vector website:
    • If you are accessing training from a computer:
      • Restart your browser. (Note: On a Mac you’ll need to fully quit the browser).
      • Make sure you are using a recent version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. If you have any pending updates, they may need to be completed to move forward with training.
      • Clear your browser’s cache, which is typically located under your browser’s history settings.
      • It is possible that device-specific browser extensions and/or pop-up blockers may be interfering with your training. Try accessing the training from another browser to rule out this possibility.


  • If you are accessing training from a mobile device:  The SafeColleges/Vector system is compatible with many mobile devices; however, some users may have personal configurations that prevent certain courses from loading. Additionally, some custom and policy courses are best displayed on a computer. If you are experiencing difficulty loading our training on a personal device, try accessing the courses through a laptop or desktop computer.
