It is very straightforward. Shortly after you subscribe for an Ablata course you receive an email. By clicking on the link in this email you will be able to login. Your email address is set as the username and you then create your own unique password.
The link form the email only works the first time you use it. On subsequent occasions you log in by pressing the “Log In” button situated on the top right corner of each Ablata web page. When you click on this button you will be asked for your username and password.
If you forgot your password please go to the “Log In” button situated on the top right corner of each Ablata web page. Press on the “I have forgotten my username/Password” link. Fill in your username and continue. Soon after this you will receive an email with a fresh link, which allows you to create a new password.
In the event that you no longer have regular access to the original email address used to sign up, you will need to contact us at email@example.com giving us your old email address and your new email address and instructions that you wish to changeover.
Ideally this request should come from your old email address. In this situation the changeover will be without delay. Otherwise we will need to correspond with your old email address to seek reasonable reassurance that you are the actual learner and not some other person intent on hijacking your learning material.
You have 90 days from the date of purchase to complete the course. Please note that this is from the time you purchase the course and not from the time you login.
If you have internet access you can access this course, at any time of the day or night
Yes. Once you have completed all of the course material you will be provided with a certificate of completion. This certificate only becomes available when 100% of the course material has been viewed. It is important that you download the certificate before your membership expires.
Yes. When you are logged in to the course you will see a PDF file which contains all of the handouts relevant to the course. You can read this file online or else print it off and use it to make your own handwritten notes while watching the videos, just like a classroom situation.
The terms of purchase are that courses are for individual use only and each paid up member will have their own username and password. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Our courses are purely educational and focus on empowering people to understand and use financial information. We do not have affiliations with any financial products and do not give tailored advice on individual investments. If you are thinking of making a large investment or a long term financial commitment we recommend that you seek independent financial advice.
Yes. On the “Home” page you can access some videos which give you a flavour for the course material. Just click on the “Free” button to launch the video. Remember that the early videos begin at an introductory level and as you progress the level of detail continues to build. After that you can subscribe which allows you to access the material as often as you like during the membership period.
Our course material is a software product and once you receive the codes to login you have free access to this material. Our online business model would not work if we made refunds after learners have accessed and used the product. Even in a conventional classroom setting it is unusual to get a refund when the cancellation happens in the days leading up to the commencement of the course. Our course material is very competitively priced and we are proud of the content and method of delivery. We hope that you understand our point of view. If your organisation is considering training several people we recommend that a small number take the course initially and “sample” the product before larger numbers commit.
Ablata is located in Tullamore, Co. Offaly, Ireland
Yes. For our standard online courses we do not incorporate this feature, but we can incorporate it into an online course tailored for your organisation.

We can tailor this to suit your needs, e.g. setting a time limit on the test, setting a minimum pass mark, etc. For further details please contact us at email@example.com
Yes. Some organisations wish to train their staff in their own unique way and for example may like to blend some of the Ablata learning material with some of their own existing learning material, to create a tailored online course. You can choose exactly the material you wish to present to your learners. It will be stored and password protected, specifically for learners chosen by your organisation. In fact you can create a “Team Leader” (e.g. from Human Resources) who will have access to the system and will be able to easily monitor how learners are progressing. For further details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
