Set Up Training Tracks

Training tracks are a great way of grouping several courses together. You can set an expected duration so learners are notified they need to complete all the courses in the track within a certain amount of time.

 

Create a Training Track Type (Category)

NOTE: Training Track Types cannot be deleted once they have had Training Tracks assigned to them. 

  1. Select Training > Training Track on the Admin navigation bar
  2. Select New Training Track Type to create a new “category” for your training tracks
  3. Enter a name for your training track type and a description (if needed) of the types of training tracks that are contained in this training track type, and then click Save.
