Am I limited to a single computer to do my eLearning?

You can use any computer or laptop with an internet connection to access your eLearning account.

Can I re-enter the course once I have started it or do I have to complete it in one go?

You can use the index button on the right hand side of the course to continue from the section which you were previously working on. The only section which you should complete in one go is the knowledge test.
