In this article, we'll show how to create an Accreditation for repeat training in Learn LMS.
Step One: Open the ‘New Accreditation’ form
Navigate to Administration Home and select ‘Accreditation’. Scroll to the end of the page and select ‘New’. The ‘New Accreditation’ page will open:
Step Two: Choose Accreditation type, enter a code and title
For repeat training, choose Accreditation type ‘Continuous Accreditation’. Enter a Code and Title (The code and title are not visible to learners but will be used by Administrators to identify the Accreditation).
Step Three: Set the Expiry and notification period for the Accreditation
Specify in the ‘Expires after’ menu, the duration for which the Accreditation is valid. The ‘Tell learners’ field determines how far in advance of expiry, the learning will move from ‘Courses I’ve Done’ back into ‘Courses I have to do. Expiry reminders (notifications) are sent according to the Expiry reminders notification schedule. See Configuring reminders for more information.
Step Four: Assign a Lesson to the Accreditation
Select ‘Lesson’ from the Accreditation administration menu. Specify the Lesson which must be completed in order to achieve the Accreditation. If multiple Lessons are assigned, then the Accreditation will be achieved if any of the Lessons has a complete status:
Note: Only members of groups directly assigned to the accreditation will be assigned to it. Members of the sub groups of those groups will not be assigned the accreditation.
Step Five: Assign the Accreditation to a Group
Select ’Group’ from the Accreditation Administration menu’ and select the Group to which the Accreditation is assigned. Click ‘Submit’ to save the assignment:
Note: It is possible to create Group hierarchies to cascade Course and Catalogue assignments to descendant Groups. For example, a Course assigned to a Group at the top of a group hierarchy is automatically assigned to all members in descendant groups.
However, Accreditations do not get cascaded to descendant Groups. For more information about Group hierarchies, take a look at this Knowledgebase article.

Setting expiry reminders is a no-brainer, right? Just configure reminders to send until the learning is completed. Well, perhaps not. Take a look at the 'Repeat training' eLearning in The Academy, in which we cover the whole process of setting up repeat training.
