Changing password criteria

I have been put in charge in my place of work for promoting the use of the MOODLE by the learners.

A big problem that I am having is learners forgetting their passwords.

How can I change the password criteria

The password must have at least 8 characters, at least 1 digit(s), at least 1 lower case letter(s), at least 1 upper case letter(s), at least 1 non-alphanumeric character(s).  This is all far to excessive .

How do I set it to ask for a simple password?
