Users are able to administer the Online Tools Training and the ELPS using either the 2017-2018 Secure Browser or the new 2018-2019 Secure Browser until December 31, 2018. After December 31, 2018 users will be required to use the 2018-2019 Secure Browser. The Online Tools Training and ELPS will no longer be accessible using the 2017-2018 Secure Browser.
