Equipment
All attendees required to bring their own iPad*, with the NIH Toolbox® iPad app installed. To get the app, visit the App Store on your iPad, or follow this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1002228307

You are required to bring your own iPad* and wireless keyboard**with the NIH Toolbox® app installed, for use during the training.  This will allow you to set up and retain any test batteries and practice participants that are created during the session. All other equipment and manuals will be provided. Please also bring a wireless keyboard if you plan to administer the Cognition Battery.

*To do this:

1. Bring an iPad Air 2, with Wi-Fi capacity, running iOS 8.4 or later.

For the purposes of training, you may use the app on a regular iPad.  However, the iPad app has not been validated to run on the other versions of the iPad.

For data collection you should use the recommend iPad Air 2, with Wi-Fi capacity, along with the recommended operating system (iOS 9 and later). 

2. **A keyboard that is connected to your iPad directly with a cord may be used at the workshop; however, you will need a wireless keyboard for proper administration in your work, which is why we highly encourage bringing a wireless keyboard to the training if at all possible.
