Setting Up Required/Recommended Courses

From this page, required and recommended courses can be searched for, assigned by multiple variables in the system, and set up to automatically renew.

For an example of a required course, if all employees need to take "Understanding Sexual Harassment" annually, this is where you will set it up to automatically reassign annually with reminder notifications to go out to the employees.

Navigating to Required/Recommended Courses

From Learning Management, click LMS Admin, click Courses, then click Required/Recommended Courses.
