  2. If you already have an account in Chesapeake Exploration enter your username and password. If not click on the Create new account button create new account
  3. On the next page, fill in the fields (the required fields are marked with a red exclamation point !). Then click on the Create my new account button at the bottom of the page.

  2. Once on the homepage of the MWEE 101 course, look on the right hand side of the window and scroll down a bit until you see the Enrol Me in this course link and click this link.
    1. NOTE: The Enrol Me option will only appear if you are signed into your Chesapeake Exploration account.

        3. Finally, on the next page that pops up, scroll to the bottom and click the Enroll me button.
