What to do after you purchase a course
The course purchase includes printed materials and electronic materials. The printed materials will be shipped to you on the day your order is processed and it will take a few days to get to you depending on the shipping option you chose.
You can, however, start on the course immediately if you choose to, taking advantage of the electronic materials, which include ebooks and software. These products can be downloaded and installed immediately for you to use.
At the time of purchase you will receive one, two, or three serial numbers depending on the course. (Weather takes just one, Radar takes three, all others take two.)
With these serial numbers in hand, you need to know two links, because you have two parts to the process. The first part is to install and register the software and ebooks, and after that you need to login to the starpath website and enroll for the course itself. Both parts are required. The full process should take just minutes.
The required serial numbers are given to you two ways. First they appear (in red) on the screen just after your purchase is approved. They are also emailed to you at the email address you used when purchasing the courses. If you do not get that email, it means either the input email address was incorrect, or the return mail has been captured in your junk mail folder. (We also send a copy to ourselves as a back up if your numbers should be misplaced.)
Part 1. Download and install the materials
Go to www.starpath.com/downloads and select your course, enter the asked for s/n and download the install package. You can save to your desktop or to your standard downloads folder. Please note where it is being downloaded.
The final install file will be called "something-setup.exe" Double click it to install the program. You will need to enter the s/n again, and at some point it will take you to our server so you can register the software. Instructions are provided in the process. The course software can be registered on a maximum of three computers.
After your course materials are installed on your computer you will have an icon (round and largely blue) with your course name under it. That icon opens the index to your course materials.
Part 2. Enroll for the online course
The next link you need is www.starpath.com/login. This link is also on our home page. Go to that link and select Enroll for an online course. If you already have a starpath username and password you can enter that, but if not go directly to Step (4) on that page to continue.
Follow the instructions given to register for the course.
Once you have completed the registration, please check your email to get your temporary password.
Then go back online to the same Login page at the Starpath website, but this time choose to Enter the online course of your choice. You will need to type in your username and password at this stage in step (2) and (3).
We call the username and password your webcard. It it is your key to accessing Starpath online resources as well as the online courses.
Then you are in the course. For more instructions see How the Courses Works.
