Getting Started

There are two ways to access standards on the TechStreet platform.

If you would like to DOWNLOAD standards, you will need to first ensure that a PDF reader, such as FoxIt PDF is installed on your computer (FoxIt is the default pdf reader on Kettering computers). Additionally, you will also need FileOpen (FoxIt may prompt install the FileOpen add-on, from there all you have to do was click the 'Yes' button and the file will open).

Each download will be a secured PDF, which will have some restrictions, such as not having the ability to edit the file or print. Please do not share the file with others outside of Kettering.

If you would like to VIEW ONLINE, TechStreet has recently released an online viewer, which will allow you to view the entire standard immediately, without dowloading it. 

After choosing a standard, you will see an option at the bottom of the screen to either download or view online, as shown below:
