Think of an Accreditation as a badge, for example, Fire Warden training. To keep the badge, learners must maintain their skills by repeating the ‘Fire Safety for Fire Wardens’ training every year.
Step one: Learning is created and deployed
A Course with a Lesson is created and assigned to Learners. Typically, Courses are assigned to a Group. This makes the Course mandatory for all Group members. For example, the ‘Fire Safety for Wardens’ Course is created and assigned to the Fire Wardens Group, like this:
Step two: the Accreditation is created and linked to learning/learners
An Accreditation called ‘Fire Safety for Fire Wardens’ is created. The Accreditation properties specify that any learners who are required to achieve this accreditation must repeat the training every 12 months (Accreditations can be configured to repeat with any frequency – from a number of days to a number of years).
The Accreditation must then be linked to:
- the Users who must complete (and repeat) the training
- the Learning through which they can do so
The Accreditation must, therefore, be linked to the ‘Fire Safety for Fire Wardens’ Lesson, and to the Fire Wardens Group, like this:
This ensures that learners are only required to repeat the training. Users who leaves the Fire Wardens Group will no longer be assigned the Accreditation and will therefore not be prompted to repeat the learning every 12 months.
