Not sure about just "top"...."navigation tips" sounds
clear enough.

I guess I would avoid "click here" statements, because
I'm assuming the students being trained will already
have an understanding of mouse usage. The term
"click" is almost exclusively related to the use of
the mouse.

Plus, the learner will likely also be able to navigate
the training by means of keyboard actions, too, and
not just the mouse.
