Exceptions

This is an educational, video drive website which requires the use of Flash to achieve it's goals. No alternative to Flash has been offered to people for whom accessing Flash may be a challenge. Given the target audience of the website, this is not anticipated to be an issue. However, if you find you are unable to use the site due to issues with accessing and using Flash, please contact ProRescue who will be happy to discuss with you alternative options for taking the course.

While some invalid CSS has been included in the creation of this site, this has only been included with a view to maximising compatability across browsers and thereby increasing accessibility. Such mark-up has been ignored for the purpose of validation.
