We encourage everyone who is eligible to join the ANS. The different membership types are described in detail on the members page. If you meet the criteria please email the membership secretary who will be able to explain the process of registering for membership.
Great! We want to get as many members registered for the site as possible. All we need is;
If you are a current member of the ANS then you have the right to register for members access to the website. In order for me to verify your status please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information:
Once I have this information I can normally register you within one or two days.
All the education content can be found on the moodle site - www.ansuk.org/moodle. You can 'browse' the content but will need to log in with your user name and password to be able to download the actual IRCP and assessment documentation.
The website changes your password into a 'salted hash' (a long string of characters) before it sends it to the server for checking. It is usually invisible but with this login module you can see the change before it sends the information.
1. Salt - this is a long string of random characters added to your password to make it even more difficult to crack.
2. Hash - an algorithm to encrypt your password.
By doing both it makes your password very difficult to reverse engineer.
If you need to clear the password field, click in it then press the CTRL+A keys together. This will highlight all the characters within the box. Then press the DEL or Delete key on your keyboard.
ANS now have a 'closed' (semi-private) Facebook Group named ANS Neurophysiology. If you require access go to that page and request to become a member. We have several Admins so you shouldn't have to wait long to gain full access. Please be aware that although this is a closed forum it should be considered to be in the public eye. It would be 'reactively moderated' if necessary.
If you have not paid your annual subscriptions by 1 June of any particular year your accounts will be frozen temporarily then deleted.
Your user name is normally made up of your first name and last name with a period (or dot) between them. For example my user name is martyn.thompson.
Except for those people who signed up in the early days, all users are given the option to choose their own passwords. If you are struggling to remember your password then get in touch with me.
To gain access to the moodle server you should use your user name and password. The moodle software is open source and adapted for ANS use. The vast majority of the programming remains the same and therefore it is possible to alter the password of moodle. This would only affect the the moodle server so it is suggested you leave your password the same as both the Webmail and the Secure servers.
If you find you have changed the password and have forgotten it then get in touch and I can reset it.
Moodle is the educational portal for the ANS website. Currently it holds to IRCP (Individual Record of Clinical Practice) and other documentation that might be of use for trainees and qualified Physiologists alike. Moodle can be found at the web address www.ansuk.org/moodle. You can browse the content without logging in but to 'join' any 'courses' you will need to log in using the same user name and password that you use for the normal website.
Your ANS membership number can be found on your ANS Membership Card. A new card is issued annually when you pay your subscriptions.
If you are unable to find your ANS number then please contact the membership secretary Jo Horrocks directly for assistance. Her email is email@example.com.
Newer versions of IE (and other web browsers) have what is known as 'Compatibility Mode'. This allows older web sites to render correctly on newer browsers such as Internet Explorer 11.0. There is no need to run your browser in compatibility mode. It will look best when viewed with the latest versions of your web browsers.
This site is not optimised for Internet Explorer 7. In fact, if you visit with that browser you will find a clear message explaining this. Avoiding any political discussions, internet explorer generally will give you a poorer browsing experience. If you have the option I would suggest Firefox, Chrome or Safari. Ask your Health Informatics team to install an alternative browser on your PC for you.
Please contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will reply to your message as soon as possible.
I do work in a busy department so please be patient when awaiting a reply.
