How do I select the right courses and/or topics for my employees?
Our virtual front office training is set up so that you can train employees by their position in the office. Training can be assigned to employees by progression so they can learn about each aspect of the front office in order. Or, by giving them access to specific areas they may need to learn, improve or refresh. We recommend that the role of Office Manager be assigned only to management level employees on the team.
Does Front Office Rocks or Laura offer in-office training or consulting?

If I cancel, can I renew my subscription at a later day?
Of course! You are always welcome to renew your training subscription at any time in the future. Simply log back into your account and select the “Renew Option.” Once you have updated your payment information for the subscription, you will have access to the entire site.
How do I cancel my enrollment? Will I get a refund?
You can cancel your membership at any point by logging into your account and cancelling your subscription. If you choose to cancel after the first ten days of your membership, you will not be issued a refund, but you will retain access to the entire site for the period you have paid. Once you have cancelled and the initial payment period has passed, you will not be charged on your next payment date.
Are there any additional or hidden fees?
There are not additional costs or fees. Your monthly (or yearly) payment covers it all. Your employees can watch the videos anytime they want and as much as they want for one fee. There is also no upsell with this service. This is it – one very fair price to help train your staff. This training was designed to be easy to use, effective, efficient and at a cost, any doctor could afford.
Do the courses include a quiz or exam?
Yes, all courses include quizzes. They are designed to test your knowledge of the topic covered in the lesson and your retention of it. You can repeat the quizzes as many times as you like. A score of 80% is required to pass.
Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes, we do! If you are not satisfied with your training just tell us in the first 10 days and we’ll refund your purchase price. We want you to be 100% happy with our courses!
I'm looking for a kind of training that I don't see on your website.

Can I use multiple computers to access the training course?
Usernames and log in information may not be shared and a user may only be logged into one computer at a time. If a user logs into a second location, they will be logged out of the first computer.
How long will I have access to the Front Office Rocks training courses?
As long as you continue to pay the monthly or yearly fee, the training will be available to you and your employees 24 hours a day. While your course subscription is active you can repeat the lessons and the quizzes as many times as you like!
How often do you recommend our staff train with Front Office Rocks?
It depends on the experience level of the employee. For employees new to a position (or the office itself), we recommend watching all relevant videos and taking the appropriate quizzes ahead of time. For example, before a new employee is allowed to answer the phones, he or she should watch the videos in Telephone Skills and pass the associated quizzes. For established employees, we recommend videos and quizzes, as needed, to enhance skills in areas that could use some improvement or as a refresher course and continuing education.
One hour per week is all it takes to train and continuously move your practice forward.
What are the benefits of Front Office Rocks?
Our training courses are available to you and your team on-demand when you want to watch them and as often as you want to watch them. Our front office training will help your team become ultimate providers of customer service, as well as become more effective and proficient in all aspects of front desk responsibilities. All the training can be done on your time when it makes sense for you and conveniently in the comfort of your office.

Can one email address be used for different employees?
No, email addresses can only be listed once in the system, so each user needs their own unique email address. If an employee email address changes, it may be updated as long as no other user in the system has that same email address.
What is the difference between an active student, inactive student, and deleted student?
An active student is one that is active in the system and will always be listed on the top of the student list when logged in as a manager.
An inactive student is a student that has access to the site but is not using it for a while or the manager does not want to delete, so by marking the student inactive, the student moves to the bottom of the list of students.
A deleted student is a student that no longer uses the training. Once marked deleted, that student will no longer have any access to the website and cannot be made active again. If that student needs access to the website again in the future, the email address initially used for that student must be different, as one email address cannot be used more than one time.
Can there be more than one account manager login?
No, only one Log In can manage the Front Office Rocks training. The system requires one person be assigned to manage the office’s account, whether it be the doctor or an employee on behalf of the doctor.
Is the doctor or the office manager the one who manages our account?
The manager account is the account that signed the office up and will manage the training of the employees (students). It does not have to be any one person in particular within the office; however, the manager account will have access to all of the account information, student set up and assigning courses.
What should I do if I fail a quiz?
This quiz requires an 80% to pass. If you do not pass with an 80%, you can either re-take the quiz and try to correctly answer the questions you missed or you can re-watch the video to ensure you fully understand the content presented.
What is the dashboard used for?
The dashboard is where you manage your account with Front Office Rocks, whether you are a student or a manager. Here, you can update names, emails addresses and other account details.
How do I register multiple employees?
As a manager, go to your main Dashboard. Choose the ‘Students’ tab and then choose the ‘Add Sub Account’ button. Enter the first and last name and the unique email address for this student.

Your new student will receive an email providing a link to set up their password, details on how to get started and an additional email welcoming them to Front Office Rocks. You may add up to 20 students on one account.
How do I give access to the videos to my employees (students)?

The video keeps pausing or stuttering. What do I do?
This is typically caused by a slow or intermittent internet connection.
The best solution is to press pause, let the computer buffer the video for a minute or two, and then press pause again. It should play without further interruption.
There are a few things that you can do to fix this issue. First, you want to make sure that you are logged in. You can verify that you are if you a student or manager listed on the upper right of your home screen.
If you can’t log in or don’t see Student or Manager – you can request a new password. Once you receive your new password, log back in to see if the videos play.
Next, try rebooting your computer. Many times, this cleans up any issues and allows the videos to play.
