Step 2: Log in with your credentials

On the SAS website, you need to select the type of user you are logging in as: candidate or accreditor. A candidate is a screening or examination officer who needs to complete training and assessment using Simfox. An accreditor is a person who can verify the identity of candidates and grant them access to Simfox.

If you are a candidate, you need to enter your username and password that were provided to you by your employer or accreditor. If you are an accreditor, you need to enter your username and password that were provided to you by CISC.

Step 3: Download the Simfox installer

After logging in, you will see a button that says "Download Simulator App" at the top of the page. Click on this button to download the Simfox installer as an .exe file named ScreenerAccreditationInstaller.exe. The download should take around a minute with a high speed internet connection and could take a few minutes with lower speeds.

Step 4: Run the Simfox installer

Once the download is complete, run the ScreenerAccreditationInstaller.exe file to begin the installation process. You can choose the default installation location or select another one if desired. Once the installation location has been selected, click "Next". The installation process should take a few minutes.

If your operating system is not Windows 10 or higher, make sure that you select "Install Windows C++ Redistributables" before clicking "Finish". This will install some necessary components for running Simfox.

Step 5: Launch Simfox

After the installation is done, you can launch Simfox by clicking on its icon on your desktop or start menu. The first time you run Simfox, it will detect if your internet connection is using a proxy server. If so, it will set an environmental variable to enable use of the proxy server settings.

You will also need to enter your username and password again to log in to Simfox. Once logged in, you can access various modules of Simfox such as conventional X-ray, computed tomography (CT), and cargo and container X-ray. You can also view your training history and progress reports.
