How do I create an account?

To create an account in STEPP:

  5. Enter a password. Your password must be at least fifteen (15) characters in length and contain a mix of two (2) uppercase letters, two (2) lowercase letters, two (2) special characters (!#$% etc.) and two (2) numbers. The password is case sensitive.
  6. Re-enter the same password in the Password Confirmation field.
  7. Complete the rest of the fields. Required fields are marked with an asterisk; you cannot leave these fields blank.
