Selecting [TRAINING PATHS] on the main menu bar displays the Training Paths screen, with the MANAGE TRAINING PATHS tab selected, as shown in the following illustration. A Training Path is a collection of courses that the student must pass in order to achieve the defined Training Path’s certification. Each Training Path that you create is displayed on the Training Paths list, with the Name, Created By, Date Created and the Active/Inactive status details shown for that specific Training Path.
Adding a New Training Path
Clicking the [ADD TRAINING PATH] link within the Training Path screen’s Manage Training Paths tab displays the Add Training Path screen, as shown in the following illustration. Use the steps below to add a Training Path to the system.
Enter a Name for the new Training Path in the Name field.
Enter a Description for the new Training Path within the Description box.
Select YES from the Active list to make the new Training Path Active, or select NO to make it Inactive.
Select YES from the Pre-Set Navigation list to prevent Users from continuing to the next Course(s) in Training Path until they complete/pass previous Courses, or select NO to not implement this restriction. This is a powerful tool for combining Courses into larger modules.
Select YES from the Self-Enrollment list to ensure that 'Not Started' Courses are not listed in Users' Activity Reports, or select NO to ensure that those Courses are listed. Use the Self-Enrollment option to create internal Course Catalogs which your assigned Users can then select from. The Self-Enrollment system does not penalize users for not viewing Courses and they can select which Courses they are interested in. Your Users will benefit from the knowledge centers you can create, and you will save time because you don’t have to ‘micro manage’ the course assignment process.
Click [ADD TRAINING PATH] to create the new Training Path. It will be displayed on the Training Paths list, in alphabetical order.
Adding Courses to a Training Path
Selecting a Training Path’s Name on the Training Paths list displays the Training Path Details screen, illustrated below. Selecting the [ADD NEW COURSES] or the [MANAGE TRAINING PATH] link on this screen allows you to build a list of Courses that the student must successfully complete before they can be certified as having satisfied all of the requirements necessary for that Training Path.
When you click the add new courses link, the Add New Courses screen is displayed, as shown in the following illustration. You can filter the Courses list by entering a Name in the Name field and by selecting a Course Category from the Course Category list, or both, and then clicking [FILTER]. Use the steps below to successfully add new Courses to a Training Path.
On this screen, select the check box for each Course that you want to add to the Training Path, and then click [ADD SELECTED].
As shown in the following illustration, the Courses that you selected are added to the Training Path Details screen.
Don’t forget to set toggle the training path to ON if you want to activate your New Training Path.
Note: You can edit your Training Path, add and delete courses and also assign mandatory Quiz or assessments for the individual courses in that Training Path.
